Zoo Atlanta - The Posers 4 - Racket-tailed Roller

The Racket-tailed Roller is a very pretty and colorful bird that "is found in southern Africa from Angola,south-eastern Democratic Republic of Congo and southern Tanzania to northern Botswana, Zimbabwe, Malawi and Mozambique." (Credit en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racket-tailed_roller)
This one at Zoo Atlanta was very calm and sat on this branch observing the passing humans. It occasionally turned it's head giving a different "pose" for me to photograph. It was unfortunate for me that I wasn't able to feature it's tail in any of my pictures, it is this feature for which it's named.
