Wauw Ben,
wat een schitterende capture, erg goede foto, prachtig freesing beeld, mooie kleuren, uitstekende job.

Lyk of hy uit die nes val. This is an unique pose of the weaver. The details are sharp and the inflight action taken nicely. Nice end to the series Ben. Thanx for sharing.

Wat een prachtig beeld, de vogel in volle vlucht fotograferen is al zeer moeilijk, de nest is perfect scherp, zeer mooie compositie.

All three are very nice, something I want to shoot too. I cannot believe they are this quick into full breeding plumage. Maybe I must go and see Friday afternoon. I will will give you as buzz if I go.

What a takeoff! An excellent shot of this moment. These guys have some real mean expressions on their faces. Thanks for posting the shots I could not get.

Cool - Bird looks oddly contorted with its legs crossed and feathers tufted out a bit. Great in-flight shot...You must've been patient on this one. Wonder how many shots it took to get it?

Nice action capture here. Well done Ben

I'm beginning to think you bribed this bird into performing for you, he's always looking your way (for the pay? ;-))
Great light and colours and excellent pose ;-)

What a freeze! It's interesting to see the muscle definition through the feathers. The twisted pose is very well captured. Beautiful colours and composition, it's a great little series you have here.

Excellent capture but don't stop posting - next one should be nest with eggs inside..then chicks :-)

Very good use of the fast speed, as it clearly shows the motion of this bird flying away from the nest. Perhaps clone out the little piece at the bottom. The sky colour is excellent. Your bird shots are very good, indeed.

Amazing picture. I like it very much. Beautiful. Congratulations.

Excellent shot of this moment,good use of the fast speed, beautiful. Eyal

Great expresion! Fine DOF. Superb photo.

Magnifique, juste au bon moment, une des plus belles images que j'aie vu! Bravo. Claude

Very great. Nice movement effect in the wings of the bird. Well done.

Very very nice Picture. (Without Flash ?)
I'm thinking to buy a 170-500, are you happy with your ?

This was a rella hard shot, but you succeeded in bringing back a beautiful one. Did you use a tripod ?
