Hello George,
A beautiful image of this colorful Masked Weaver. I really like the way he is perched diagonally while clutching the bark of the tree.
That bright red eye really stands out against it's black mask while it's yellow breast and orangish cap seem to give him a bit of royalty.
Excellent focus and great use of available light.

Hello George,
Appropriate perfection in clarity and colour intensity within the soft BG is remarkable,composition is balanced and diagonal representation of the subject added extra values to your capture.
With regards,_Joy

Hi George
Iso 640 looks like Kodachrome 25 a few decades ago

Wow....This was close......
Another gorgeous species of birds with fantastic colors. The POV is perfectly chosen.
Incredible sharp details and perfect focus. Perfect WB too. Congratulation for this marvelous capture. Thanks for sharing!

Hi George,
Once again, you captured a really beautiful one. Well done.

even the tufts of thin feathers on the crown of this glorious head. WOWOWOWOW but the claws could have been a tad sharper. It IS an EF 300 you're using..so no excuse. ((hehe))

Well done my friend..i think this lil guy is one of my all time faves!
