Here my first upload of my 3rd trip to South Africa.
It has been a wonderfull trip. I will try to write some stories in the traveloque I made.
So here is the weaver very busy to make a new home. I was sitting to look how they do it, it is so cute to see how fast and busy they are to make their new home. So efficient and ingenious.
I hope you like it.

Hello Viv,
This is a superb capture of a Southern Masked Weaver hanging from a possible new nest. Interesting to see an old, perhaps used, nest slightly OOF in the FG and good that you focused on the bird and his latest construction in what is a fine composition.
Thanks for sharing this one,
Regards, Ivan

Ha Vivian,

Fantastisch om te zien hoe deze prachtige wever zijn nest bouwt.
Uitstekende scherpte, perfecte kleuren en een prima pose

Hi Vivian
Excellent shot of the Masked Weaver. I have many trees around my house next to the Vaaldam in South Africa and about 10 couples visit us every year. It is amazing to watch the males building the nests.
