"UP CLOSE" #5: DEMURE DUO


A pair of Knysna Turacos watch me warily as I disturb their afternoon snack of wild olives.  These elegant birds always prompt me to make a word association with the adjective: demure.

Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English:
demure - quiet, serious and well-behaved - used especially about women

Their demureness is however shattered by their raucous, guttural call!

OJ - considering the demureness of the Turaco
