Botswana – Blue Waxbill

Blue Waxbill
The blue waxbill (Uraeginthus angolensis), also called blue-breasted cordon-bleu, is a small estrildid finch (about 12.5cm) found in open grassland, savanna, bush or wooded areas and cultivated lands of South Africa. We saw these cuties in Botswana’s Mashatu Game Reserve. It needs to drink regularly, hence is often found in areas with a constant supply of surface water. Its diet consists of small seed and insects (for protein especially during breeding period). Interested males sing and dance when courting a female, with a blade of grass in his beak (it must have Spanish blood, reminds me of flamenco!). Blue waxbills can live for a decade or more.

Listen to the chirpings of a blue waxbill.

My chum D recently called me a ‘bad influence’ of all things luminous, so this is my response to him. This is for you D, …try beating this ‘walking highlight’ look *GRIN*

This is absolutely hilarious – the exact colour scheme as chum D, and it wasn’t intentional! We should go out together wearing these – we will literally brighten the streets! LOL

Look of the Day – Stripey Blue

Stripey Blue - Details

Knit Dress: Sonia Rykiel
Chain-maille Body Harness: Fannie Schiavoni
Bracelets: From Korea
Watch & Espadrille Platforms: Hermes

Stripey Blue Met a friend for brunch over the weekend, and decided on an elegant knitwear dress sporting a translucent lower for that peek-a-boo effect (no not playing seductress here – my friend’s a lady ;D). Threw on my chain-maille body harness for that added punk-chick cool, and piled on lots of bracelets for that extra bling – it’s really nice to get a stack of these bracelets, cos’ they practically go with any outfit!

Hope you like the look!
