[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This little weaver comes to fight with his image every day around 4pm. He has not figured out that he is fighting himself. If you look closely at the mirror, you will see marks from his beak and feet. There are scratches on the side of the mirror as well from him - I presume. I have more pics that I will post later. He actually jumps onto the mirror and pecks at it, ruffles his feathers at his image, and makes funny rumbling sounds .. very amusing :)

I like it, it is very cute and normally they are always very busy building their nests. And always moving.

This is a great shot. What I find so good about it is that the weaver is looking straight at the camera through the mirror. Very good point of view.

Super job! Very nicely done!

Lovely shot, crystal clear and colourful, with nice DOF.

Ha ha.... very nice shot Liezel. Lovely light and depth of colour. Well composed with sharp details. Good work. TFS.

Very nice image Liezel!
Your note is pretty funny!
Great DOF and POV!

Very nice pisture, bright colors, clarity is well achieved. The bird sounds like it is a little aggressive type.
