[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have captured this picture in our yard at late evening. Actually I wanted to captured almost oval shapped moon which I haven't seen before. My good luck, found this Southern Masked Weaver sitting on unknown flower. Light was very low but I always look for an eye catching composition.

I haven't seen any bird there except this one; he was late. A few night birds follow Moon and its rise and set. Do they have any relation?

It's an mystery how birds wake up with Sunrise and return home at Sunset. Do they have any unuttered relation with Sun and Moon? Don't know! May be or may be not!

Hi Srikumar,

I like the inclusion of the moon in the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the Southern Masked Weaver. The surrounding light is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice day.

Hello Srikumar,
What an impressive image you have presented to us. Getting both subjects into pin sharp focus is amazing under such lighting conditions. A person might hope for a shot like this, yet never get everything to line up so perfectly. I love the luminosity on the birds plumage which shows us it's beautiful colors. You even managed to capture some catchlight in its eye...awesome!

Hi Srikumar,
what a shot!! Congratulation

Hi Sri,
I think this is a "once-in-a-lifetime" capture. You may always be proud of this capture, even 50 years later. One of the best photos in the history of TrekNature.
Kind regards, László

Hello Srikumar,
