Hello Srikumar,
Impressive photo of this beautiful female Masked Weaver. Picture perfect is all I can think of. The overall quality is superb and the pose is charming, Well done!!

Hello Srikumar,
Amazing details and excellent natural colors. It is a specie which has almost the same colors and shape like the female European Greenfinch. Perfect composition with the best details.

Hi Srikumar,

The bird is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details of the Southern Masked Weaver. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
