Tecelão-de-cabeça-preta, Black-headed Weaver

(Ploceus melanocephalus) - female

Exotic species in Portugal occurs in places that colonizes,mostly in Estremadura, Ribatejo and Algarve. The male show with its bright yellow & black plumage... the female is also a beautiful bird more discrete... they come to see you closely,sometimes no chance to focus even....:)
This pic I took from the car.

Hi Jose,beautiful macro showing us this tiny friend in an acrobatic pose,great quality despite the difficult location,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Dr. Diogo,
Great macro despite the register from a car and possibly no tripod.
Looks like a female. [Wonder if it is using FALSE EYE lashes. Ha! ha! ha!]
Great focusing job.
Excellent clarity too.
Lots of details are visible distinctly!!!
Regards from Canada from Mario.
