[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In the wild, orange weavers make their homes in reed beds close to the surface of water. True to its name, male orange weavers construct complexly woven nests during breeding season. These birds, like most other finches, are social, and enjoy the company of other finches.
Orange weavers are polygamous in the wild, and two or three females should generally be provided for each male.

Hi Andrzej,
I the colors and details. Thanks for sharing.

A disappointing image of this Bishop, Andrzej ! Good evening! The photo contains unnatural Cyan color tint, the detail on the bird's plumage has been washed, most probably by the use of a noise reduction filter, the sharpness seems effected and the composition rather ill-considered!

Hallo Andrzej,
Dla mnie nie znany i bardzo interesujacy ptak.Co do kolorystyki jest troche nienaturalna ale czy tak naprawde jest nie wiem bo go jeszcze nie widzialem.Fantastyczne tlo pokazuje go w jeszcze lepszym swietle.Pozdrawiam Siggi

Hello Andrzej,
What a unique looking little bird you have captured with your camera. Love the beautiful markings in it's colorful plumage. I don't believe we have Weavers here in the US. but their nest reminds me alot of our Baltimore Orioles.

Hello Andrzej

The plumage of the Orange Bishop Weaver its
beautiful with the mix of orange color tones,
fine POV and framing, beautiful light, TFS


this doesn't even look real..looks like a painting..just ADORE THIS! Awesome capture my friend! TFS!

Hi Andrzej,

A very beautiful bird. Superbly exposed in natural light. The plumage looks a little soft, but somehow, adds up to the beauty of this multicoloured bird.



Bonjour Andrzej,
Une très belle lumière faisant resplendir de splendides couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Czesc Andrzej,
kolejny ciekawy gatunek, ktorego pewnie nigdy nie zobacze na zywo :(
Piekne kolory. Ciekawy punkt widzenia.
