Conversation with the Kingfisher

There is an absolutely charming legend about the kingfisher. It was said that they built a floating nest and wherever the nest would drift according to the wind and river movements, the surrounding water would remain calm. Even if a nest floated out to sea, then the area would be calmed. Thus, the kingfisher would be a sacred bird to the ancient mariners. It was also said that the nest would be made of fish bones. In reality, kingfishers consume large quantities of fish, aquatic insects and freshwater shrimp. They regurgitate the indigestible portions and the nest can become strewn with bones, so this may have contributed to the legend. Their eggs are a beautiful deep pinkish hue, and usually they lay 6 in number. Male and female kingfishers create their nests by excavating a burrow in a shallow river, stream or lake bank, usually just below the top of the bank.

This little post is really to illustrate 7 Deadly s{K}ins January group gift for us gents, the “Jager” set. It’s a very generous set by designer, Izara.  Here’s what we get:-

24 Omega head appliers (with/without hairbase & clean plus light beard versions), which were fitted on the GA.EG Damon Bento mesh head originally, although here I used CATWA Paul. Tones are caramel, cotton, steam, earth, taupe and stone. I chose the earth tone, clean for my pictures.

6 system skins plus SLINK hands/feet appliers and Omega body appliers, I chose the matching smooth earth tone.

2 bonus shapes – shape for bento head on SLINK body, shape for  bento head on system body plus system head shape for comparison.

There is an add-on pack instore for 250L, viewing recommended.
