Artist's Description

Buffalo-Weavers are large weavers with heavy bills. The Dinemellia genus, of which the White-headed Buffalo-Weaver (Dinemellia dinemellia) is one is distinctly orange-red, brown and white. This bird is very distinctive, especially in flight, when its bright orange-red rump and large white wing patches are very clear. The sexes are alike. Like this one, that was spotted in Buffalo Springs, Samburu, Kenya, they are often seen on the ground or low in the trees. It certainly wasn’t too bothered by my presence and allowed me to get very close for this shot.

Canon 1D MkII with Canon 300mm EF IS lens and Canon 1.4X extender. ISO200 1/320 at f9.
