Lipstick 3

Sorry I havent been uploading as much. I havent gotten any inspiration! Here is the last picture to the lipstick pictures.. for now ;) I just love this bird too much!


A elegant looking Knysna Lourie/ Knysna Turaco.

The Knysna Turaco, or, in South Africa, Knysna Lourie, Tauraco corythaix , is a large turaco, one of a group of African near-passerine birds. It is a resident breeder in the mature evergreen forests of southern and eastern South Africa. It was formerly sometimes considered to be a subspecies of the Green Turaco of West Africa.

Another picture of this beautiful bird can be found here: [link]

Are the female Knysna Turaco as pretty as the male turacos?
