What a pov, from the bird as well!
This is entrancing. I don't think I have ever seen a bird is such a contorted position!
Your plummage details are excellent and I like the composition.

Definitely something different. Nice to see an image that tells us what birds do for their living. Sharp and good colours.

Another beautiful shot of this elusive little Red-headed weaver. I say elusive, because of my personal experience with these birds. I have seldom seen any and when I had the luck, they always stayed well within the thickets and branches so I could never get a nice clear shot of one. Good eye contact with the bird twisting its head through the 180° to have a good look at you (or was it the shoppers?).
Well done and TFS.

Hello Annick, WOW another good one. Superb colors and good focus. I like the bird focus on the eyes and the way it is hanging. Well done and TFS Ganesh
A wonderful photo with a great pose of this lovely bird. I love the soft light conditions and how it brought out the orange of the bird even more. The whites might be a bit too hot on exposure, but I can understand the difficulties you had to deal with.

Ohh...this is lovely!
The vivid red of the weaver stands out so beautifully here and the pose you managed to capture it in is just outstanding!
Again a splendid (and also bold) composition, my friend...but you are the man for such things! I always love the way you frame your photos!
...And since you managed, under these condition (high ISO and crop), the quality and clarity of the shot are terrific!
Bravo and TFS
