[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is another picture of the Baya weaver . Here it is the female which is flying into the nest to inspect its construction. These females do this to select the appropriate mate :-)
To get this shot i pre- focused on the nest and when the bird flew in just pressed the trigger in continuous mode , after few misses( In the range of 25/30) i got couple of decent shots ... these birds are very fast! look at the SS i have set 1/2500 of a sec... Phew...

Hello Goutham
Beautiful freeze.
Just in time your finger and camera shutter took action,
I think some colour noise is there.
