[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The White-headed Munia (Lonchura maja) is a species of estrildid finch found in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. This species is also introduced to Portugal. It is found in wetlands habitat. The status of the species is evaluated as Least Concern.

Most of my bird shots are taken handheld including this one. The fact that carrying around tripod is so clumsy and difficult.
As to respond to Mr. Neels, this lens is not very heavy and it can absorbs so me lens shake.
( Most of all I cant afford expensive prime lens for the time being...hopefully one day )

Beautiful Munia which we don't find here in India, Foozi.
You have done a great job with your big lens.

The plain BG makes the bird stand out beautifully.

Hello Foozi,
An awesome photo of this beautiful White-headed Munia. The focus is tac sharp allowing us to view this gorgeous bird in excellent detail. I wouldn't be too concerned about a prime lens when you obtain such outstanding photos with what you already are using.
Like you, I also hand hold my camera most of the time. I get tired of carrying my camera and a tripod, so I normally leave the tripod in the car.

wonderful picture, with nice quality and color performance!
regards Foozi
