|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Hi fellow TN friends,|
Came to visit George, took my kids to eat strawberries, it was the most delicious strawberries ever one have tasted.
Small birds in the surroundings, took about hundred photos, even though EF100-400mm L II USM IS lens, could not really see the full details, perhaps too much of camera-shake.
Please share your thoughts to make me better ;) and please if you know the name of the species, please kindly share too.

Nice photo of this Cape Weaver, Ploceus capensis, in fine sharpness and beautiful light. I got a few tips, if you don't mind. Post the photo in the measure 800 x 531 for the best composition. Here you can cut a piece of the top side. And I always walk a lot in nature, then I carry a light monopod with me. It's the best for good details in the subject and not so heavy as a tripod.
Enjoy the weekend,

This is the first time I have ever read a persons notes on TN and felt hungry afterwards;) My grandkids and I love strawberries too.
Your bird is nicely focused and shows good detail in my opinion. The colors are rich and natural and the exposure is just right. I like the nice eye contact you managed to capture. I did a WS to clean up the bill a little.
I haven't seen this Cape Weaver (Male) in Johannesburg area, yet. Well captured and against blue BG. Yes, you could easily remove the OOF thin branch. Color looks gorgeous. I also don't use any Pod; Tri/Mono.
Thanks for sharing with useful NOTE about setting,
Regards and have a nice WE,
