Red - Headed Weaver (Anaplectes rubriceps)

I have captured this avian architect 'Red - Headed Weaver' at Pretorioukop Rest Camp area during our staying at Kruger National Park. Small size Weaver and most of the time I saw them flapping their wings. Very restless but beautiful bird.

Hi Srikumar
The first time I see this bird species.
Really beautiful and well photographed.
The head is a bit similar to that of the quetzal.


Hi Srikumar,
Wonderful image with gorgeous lights and nice color gamut. I especially like the diagonal composition, it's pleasant to look at - but the scarlet feathers of the head are mesmerizing, too. Magic shot, congratulations!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hello Srikumar,

Hello Srikumar,
Beautiful photo of this special bird. Not in total perfect sharpness, but very beautiful in light and colors. Nice OOF background. Fine composition too.

Hi Srikumar,

The bird is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details of the Red-Headed Weaver. The light is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
