Sunday Stamps 021: Beautiful blue cranes of Botswana

stampbuttonb[5]

We are free to choose what to post today so here's my share: 
Blue cranes, also known as the Stanley Crane and the Paradise Crane, is a tall, ground-dwelling, beautiful pale blue-grey in colou. I wonder why they're coloured white in this stamp though.
The Blue Crane is now classified as vulnerable due to the sudden decline of its population in the 1980s. The Blue crane is nearly endemic to South Africa and is the country's national bird. There are, however, not many Blue Cranes in Botswana although huge numbers of them come and go at times.

Another first for me, I've never seen anything from Botswana before. Fine stamp.

These blue cranes look rather white to me, but I guess they are very pale in colour. I am still anticipating my first Postcrossing card from Africa.
