Hello Goutham,
Nice pose, good composition and high technical standard with good lighting and plain BG contribute to a fine capture of a nesting Baya weaver. I have not suggestions for improvement here!
Thanks and all the best,

Hello Goutham,

Hello Goutham,

Hello Goutham,
Very funny attitude of this weaver-bird. They are so agile!
Nice decentred composition and like always good sharpness.
Thanks for your visit to my butterfly. And if you know about a trip to CH, so let me know!
Kind regards

Hell Goutham.
it's nice to see you are back with new postings.
The colours are fine and natural, good sharpness and DOF.
Maybe the green to the right is a bit distracting but that's nature.
Another small nit I can find, is the small halo around the sharp edges around the bird. It use to be a sign of over sharpen
but it can also occur with a dark subject against a very light BG.
Nevertheless it's a very nice picture of this weaver.
Well done, mf.

Hi Goutham,
you caught the very fraction of a second where the weaver bird is actually weaving! Your picture is extremely well composed. This might have to do with your choice of a nest that is only beginning to be built. That way our regards are on the bird and the few fiber strands it works on. Great!
My best regards to you from cold-again Switzerland

Very nice composition with nice pose.Good sharpness and colors.TFS.


Interesting capture, Goutham.
The bird is up-side-down, but the position of the head is normal.
So the impression one gets is quite peculiar, almost verging on the abstract.
However, it is a great picture that shows how these birds build their nests with so much enthusiasm.
Thanks and regards.

Hi Goutham

Good shot of this lovely weaver hanging from his nest. Good composition and sharpness.


superb image :)
