[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The red-headed finch (Amadina erythrocephala) (also known as the paradise finch or the red-headed weaver) is a common species of estrildid finch found in Africa. They are very common in our area and love visiting the bird feeder next to the patio very close to us.

This photo was taken in the middle of winter and it is unusual that it already has its summer breeding colors.

Wonderful capture, Deon.
The sharpness is outstanding and so are the colours.

Hello Deon,
Another beautiful photo of a beautiful bird. Excellent sharpness, natural colours and an attractive pose. Maybe a bit too much centered in the composition.

Hello Deon- Please put "D", in place of "h". Very well captured this Finch with natural colour and sharpness. I like its BG, as well as details on its plumage. Thanks for sharing. Regards and have a nice Sunday- Srikumar
