The branch is framing well the bird. The point of view is showing the details of the Musked Weaver. The good luminosity is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

Very beautiful capture. Lovely colors and light. Great details. The bird posed well for you...



Hello Srikumar,
a perfectly well composed and highly condensed artistical image of just a few elements. Deliciously rich, smoothly natural colours of subjects and background. And a really charming pose of Masked Weaver. A pleasure to look at.
Thank you! With best regards,
