Hard Working Weaver by RoieG Hard Working Weaver by RoieG
This is the male Weaver.
he works very hard to weave a fine nest for the female (and chicks) with the opening away from the branch so that snakes can't enter.
the female picks the male with the nicest nest, and if she doesn't approve she drops it from the tree to the ground and the male starts over.

Male's life are tough...


Full View is a must.

What lens was sued for this? I am in the market for a good 300m lens for my d50. I'll be shooting birds primarily.

I used Sigma 120-300 F/2.8 on a X1.4 tc.
if you want a budget lens, then the Nikon 300 F/4 with X1.7 TC will give you excellent results.
