    The photographer has a funny name so is obviously an evil Mooslim terrorist. Creeping Birdy Sharia!

    That is a brilliant capture! Kudos to the photographer for getting it in such an unconventional, and interesting, pose.


    P.S. @ Anne t.C.C.L.
    In case you haven’t looked it up, it’s a Lilac-breasted Roller, an East/South African species (yes, a scary furriner). They get up to 36 cm long (including a fairly significant tail), so not so little really; sorta medium-sized, slightly larger than a Blue/Stellar’s Jay.

    “If you’re gonna be grumpy, at least be colorful about it”: The mildly deranged penguin disagrees. An elegant nature tuxedo is all that is required. Plus a love of cheese, and a temperament implementing EXTERMINATE! on all Universes that disagree (or contain peas)…

    Looks like a technicolor version of the kookaburra, seems to have similar tastes.

    Same order, different family.
