[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I noticed two different type of Female Masked Weaver; red eyed and brown eyed. Do they use contact lens? Don't know, still didn't get chance to ask them. But they are beautiful little bird with greenish-yellowish color on their back and whitish chest. No, they don't have such black Mask like male. "Male" wants to hide something? I mean hidden agenda? Don't know why this difference. Here you can see Red eyed Female Masked Weaver. I'll show you Brown eyed one another time.

Hi Srikumar.Funny comment about eyes and contact lens! And this time the pic is perfect,a bit too large but with fine details and no noise in background,curious red eye female in a beautiful composition! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Funny note to a nice picture! Oddly, my first impression was that the bird is smiling at us.

Hello Srikumar,
A wonderful image with excellent details and very good focus. It looks similar to European Greenfinch.

Hi Srikumar
I do like the soft light on this golden bird.
Good depth of field resulting in a neat background.


Hello Srikumar

Lovely shot of this beautiful bird, with very fine lateral POV and framing,
very beautiful light and color tones, great focus, sharpness details, and contrast, TFS


Hi Srikumar,

The branches are framing well the bird. The point of view is showing the details of the Red Eyed Masked Weaver. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.


Hello Srikumar,
Anxiously waiting to get a job so I can afford a x2 converter for my 400mm ;)
Amazing click, love the colors and sharpness, all thousand points my friend.
