[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took a photo of this very common bird at Amboseli National park, Kenya. It wasn't until I look at the photo afterwards that I realize that this bird had blue eyes. Perhaps it was just the way the light catches the eyes. No way near being one of the fanciest African bird, but I like it all the same.

Hello Sitthivet,
This is an excellent capture of what I presume is some kind of babbler. Your presentation is sharp, well composed and with fine pose showing the blue eye very clearly.
Like to know the ID, though.
TFS, regards, Ivan

Strange how the light angle can change yhe colours of a bird's feathers, eyes,..
Very good work..

Rufous-tailed Weaver is the name if you are interesting to identify your bird :) (you can found more info in my gallery)
Nice detail and pose.

Hello Sitthivet,
what beautiful blue eyes this bird has.
This is a beautiful shot, very nice sharpness and the plumage is so detailed. POV and colors are lovely, the background is wonderful blurred.
