Composition, colors, lighting and the pose you caught is very nice.
PS: I never thought of writing critiques and giving points to the photos I like as "wasting my smileys". So I'm rating this, sorry :o)
long time no see ;-(
It's great to see a post from you again mmy friend.
The picture is lovely with a very nice compostion and POV.
Good details and I really like the light and the colours.
It has become a real winter after a long period of warm and grey days. It's has snowing quite hard in three days now.

Great to see a post from you, and what a beauty it is. Nicely timed to get this bright wee fellow with the leaf in its beak. The clarity and sharpness are both excellent. Love that lens, and with an extender. Wow.... 700mm focal length, that's awesome. Thank you my friend! :-)
PS: I too am giving points as this is a true work of art!

Gerhard this is a great photo!
I love the timing on this one getting the weaver tugging at that plant. Fantastic sharpness and the background is mint. The yellows have come up really well and composition good.

A superb shot on this Yellow Weaver. Your composition and framing on the shot is flawless. The long lens has done an outstanding job seperating him from the OOF backround. Colors and detail look really great. Nice camera work!

A really neat and pure image. Bird has the right size, exact exposure, fine details and is abolutely isolated from the background. A nice pose, a dynamic composition and a excellent note make a complete, aesthetic and technically perfect photo.

It is amazing to see the degree of damage and havoc these weavers can muster up since they nest in my garden and what this guy is doing with that leaf they are doing to my palms. Needless to say that after a breeding season it looks like all my palms were exposed to a landmine blast as the leaves are shredded and tattered.
Anyway, you’ve captured this guy well in the act. The BG makes the bird and the vegetation stand out nicely. The details and colours are stunning and the exposure was perfect.
Good work and TFS.

Can and will spend hours to take a look at all your magnificent images.
