The Scaly-breasted Munia or Spotted Munia (Lonchura punctulata), known in the pet trade as Nutmeg Mannikin or Spice Finch, is a sparrow-sized estrildid finch native to tropical Asia. A species of the genus Lonchura, it was formally described and named by Carl Linnaeus in 1758. Its name is based on the distinct scale-like feather markings on the breast and belly. The adult is brown above and has a dark conical bill. The species has 11 subspecies across their range and differ slightly in size and colour.

Hello Chandra,
Excellent photo of this munia in beautiful natural colours against a nice blurred background. Great DOF, sharpness and composition.
Have a good weekend,

Hi Chandra,
Beautiful shot, even with the grainy background. Fascinating composition, excellent lights and color tones. For removing the background noise, use the free dempo of Neat Image from wwww.neatimage.com . It's a great noise reduction program, easy to use. Just see the enclosed WS.
Best regards, László

Hello Chandra,
照的清晰 很漂亮的班文鳥
照的姿勢漂亮 神情可愛 令人喜歡

Very niced blurred background, good use of a heavy lens at its max. length for a sharp photo. Good composition with some space for the bird to look into, and a nice natural perch.
