Love(bird) for sale

Love(bird) for sale, originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

Here we were three years ago in Damaraland on our trip around northern Namibia.

This little chappie was being held by a chap who was trying to sell him to us at the car (Toyota Land Cruiser) window, so no prizes for getting so close.

I think we paid a small amount of money to have the bird freed, but no doubt he would have been captured again... not that this was exactly a touristy area.

We had come off the main road to camp next to a fresh water spring.
