From this point of view she looks more scary... Swartkeelvink (Southern Masked Weaver - Ploceus velatus) Free State, South Africa by 


Now I have to tell you the story… We got this young “Witstinkhout” tree that has a hard time getting big, for the Finches don’t give it a chance. So we chase them away every time they want to build a new nest. Now this little fellow came with a piece of grass in its beak, and I use the opportunity to take some photographs before I chase him away. After a while he Let go of the grass and only sat there and watch me… He peeped at me from different views, and I was so lucky to get the shot when he peeped to me through his legs…

Living on a farm, as I do, I’m provided unique opportunities to photograph plants and creatures. There are not many trees here, and no mountains or rocks; but there are a lot of fields! The bright sun gives me many lovely silhouettes to capture; while the rain brings out tiny plants and creatures. Sometimes I visit another town or province; and then my Canon EOS 550D works overtime.
