Zimbabwe photos :collection.1-the colours of a starling.
The Metalic Starling
What a way to wake up.
Every morning when I am in Zimbabwe, there is a metallic starling that comes digging for worms on the lawn. It is such a glorious site to see its colour change in the sunlight as I have my coffee on the verandah. Sounds like paradise does it not?

The big green locust
This type of locust used to scare us when we were kids. We would get a long stick and poke it from a distance to agitate it. The locust would flare up its wings to reveal a bright yellow under side with green spots. We always thought it was highly poisonous as it did not fall into the edible category.
Edible Mr.Brown Locust

As kids we used to have fun chasing and catching these brown locusts especially during harvest time. They love corn and we would go sneaking on them in the fields.It was more of a delicacy and the fun was in catching them.
