Well, it looks like Oriental White Eye to me, Nelson.
But I'm not sure you have them in South Africa.
Anyway, it's a good capture.

  • Great

Hello Nelson,
This is the Cape White-eye, Zosterops virens, Kaapse Glasogie. Always try to get the focus on the eye of the bird. Here it's on the breast.
Have a good weekend,

Hello Nelson,
Beautiful species, no doubt. Quite well captured. Natural color. In PP work you could add little bit sharpness. But again man made article in photograph. Nelson 400mm not bad my friend. But a teleconverter would be great.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice WE,

thanks for the kind comments on my picture's Nelson
this is a beauty a little more sharpness on the eyes are better
nice composition

thanks gr lou

Ciao Nelson, great capture of lovely bird in nice pose, wonderful colors, splendid sharpness and fine details, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Nelson,

The bird is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details of the bird. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
