Great picture of the weaver bird Paul, I just saw them in a zoo a couple days ago in Seatle Washington.
Nice colours and sharpness.



Hi Paul,

Well done, this is a very nice picture. Where did you take it? The lighting is very good, the catchlight in the eye is just perfect. I would have liked it slightly sharper though. TFS.


Hi Paul, Nice pose on the bird. He looks as if he is trying to ignore you :-) The colors are very beautiful and the soft BG really highlights the bird. Nicely done :-)

Hello Paul!
Very nice capture.Pose of bird,clear eyes,colors and composition are wonderful.TFS...:-)

Hello Paul

This fella has got lovely plumage colour. Something has caught his attention. Nice catchlight, detail and light. Well done. Thanks.

Hi Paul. Very good shot. Great POV and very good details. Excellent colours.

Hi Paul,

The compos are much nicer now had a look at the last couple you posted. Regarding this one yuo should take care to clip the toenails. Always sharpen digital photos. They need sharpening because of the shape of the sensor not being flat like film. Nice one.
