[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Grey white eye, Zosterops borbonica, locally known as the onomatopoeic Pic-pic. This small endemic bird commonly seen in groups all over the island, this one was in the Nature Park at Bras d'Eau where I totally failed to get a photo of the rare Mauritian Fly catcher. They flit quickly through the trees making it very difficult to get a shot of one in good light.

Hi Goeffrey,good result despite the very difficult light and location,good sharpness,especially on the left part and a lt of green too,interesting specie not often seen on TN.Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

Hello Geoffrey,
Quite well captured this "Grey White Eye". I like its natural habitat. Perfect BG too. Little bit contrast and sharpness would have been enhance the quality, in my opinion.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice Sunday,

Hello Geoffrey,
A very pretty bird with beautiful color and attractive markings. I like the natural habitat and overall framing. To me the exposure seems a tad bit dark as the eye is almost hidden in the shadow. Hope you don't mind, but I wanted to try a WS.
