A sharp picture of this bird. It must be one of the most widespread birds. We have them in abundance here in Sweden too. They are called "pilfink" ("arrow finch" freely translated).
I think the picture could be cropped a little tighter to focus more on the bird.
Very nice capture of this Maya bird. Good depth of field. I thought it is a little grainy, but still a great phone.
I tried a workshop.
This capture is very well composed, and there is a good contrast between subject and background.
I register here because I want to add to this post. Unfortunately, this is not the real MAYA, for your information. The image you saw in brown color is not the one. the real MAYA is in read color.
The Philippine maya is otherwise known as the Black-headed Munia also known as Chestnut Munia (Lonchura atricapilla). While it's family is found throughout Asia, the maya bird subspecies particularly belongs to the Philippines. It's called Lonchura atricapilla jagori.
I want to add a photo of but I dont know how to do it here. And hope you will believe this.
The Philippine MAYA is quite smaller than that.
