Hi Jose,

A beautiful Weaver in a fantastic setting = looks more like a painting than a photograph. The bird is magnificent with its wonderful colors and fine details. The composition is spectacular. How nice to be neighbors today.


Bonjour Jose,
Le cadrage me paraît un peu large mais le sujet est relativement bien valorisé dans son environnement.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Jose
Interesting species and beautiful photo with excellent composition. The colours are fantastic. Interesting note too.
