[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The breeding male distinguished from the Lesser Masked Weaver by its brown legs, red, not white eye and by the black mask, which does not extend behind the eye, forming a point on the throat. Differs from
the larger Spottedbacked Weaver by having a uniform green, not, yellow-spotted back.

What a great capture, Nyala.
It really shows these colorful birds with their interesting nests.
The bird and nest on the left are super sharp.
The yellow and black plumage make a vibrant contrast.
Love the pose of the weaver hanging upside down from the nest.
TFS. : )

you have captured a great moment here though i wish for a bit more contrast the timing is perfect.

Hi Nyala,

I like the nest on the left very much. It is crisp and in focus. Very good DOF, the BG is perfectly OOF. Well done.
