Excellent composition and presentation, great detail too. Reminds me a bit of our Southern Masked Weavers.

Such a pretty little bird Sylvia. What an usual variation in colour on from the body of the bird to the wing feathers. I seems to work however ( mother nature does not often get it wrong ). Super shot.
