Lilac Breasted Roller, Okavango Delta, Botswana

From my Botswana adventure,  a lilac breasted roller sits on a twig and plays catch with what I think was intended to be lunch.   I took several shots of this scene and am not entirely sure what it is that he’s tossing with his bill.   After looking at several frames,  my best guess is it's a bug of some sort!
