That's a very elegant bird there, Peter. I have viewed it for the first time.
You have managed a good shot despite your low exposure values. Were you using a tripod?
Thanks and regards.
This species is really wonderful. However, where is its tail? You managed to catch a nice moment. Pose of the bird, posture of the head and bird's look are very cute. Reproduction of colouration, feathers and other details are ultimate. My kind wishes and compliments.

A very nice capture of this colourful species of E. African Weaver, a male Black Bishop. The pose and POV are interesting and taken with excellent sharpness and colours against a nice tree trunk BG considering the low lighting.
Thanks and kind regards,

Congratulations and thank you for this first on TN. This exotic bird is a beauty with the wonderful face surrounded by the orange feathers. The black eye and beak are fantastic. The wings are so pretty and unusual. Details and textures are marvelous - wonderful pose - lovely setting and composition.

Amazing to have bishops in the bird-world! Amazing too, because we just lost yesterday one of our most beloved bishops in Switzerland. You caught it in a very special position, looking down on something interesting, I suppose.
Colorful picture taken at the marvellous place of Walsrode.

What a gorgeous species you bring us for the first time. The colours are brilliant and the pose almost comical, as it appears to be afraid of the edge.

first of all the name itself is new to me. The colour combination is so special and unique and the composition is sttractive. The texture of the semi opened wings is very sharp and detailed.
Very well composed shot and you waited for the right moment to trigger the camers.
