European Roller with frog. Hungary July 2019.

This Roller was a master at catching what I think are Marsh Frogs. They were a regular prey item alongside black beetles which also seemed to be popular.

These images are from 2 separate pairs of rollers and as you can see their plumages vary considerably.

The photos are a bit "noisy" as the first was taken at 04:17 in the morning when there was very little light and hence a high ISO & a low shutter speed.

Don't think I want to be reincarnated as a frog that's for sure!
