Scaly-breasted Munia (Lonchura punctulata),.
Size= 11cm

This my 3rd posting of the same bird species.
Very common munia species at my backyard. This bird was photographed perched at banana leave. With this back posture we can't see its scaly pattern at the breast area.

Salam Redzlan,
excellent sharpness of the chiak. I like its pose as well as the agile eye.
Very well composed with the diagonal of the banana leaf, and also a nice boke for enhancement.
