Baya weaver
India,Rajkot,04-04-2017.

The baya weaver (Ploceus philippinus) is a weaverbird found across the Indian Subcontinent and Southeast Asia. Flocks of these birds are found in grasslands, cultivated areas, scrub and secondary growth and they are best known for their hanging retort shaped nests woven from leaves. These nest colonies are usually found on thorny trees or palm fronds and the nests are often built near water or hanging over water where predators cannot reach easily. They are widespread and common within their range but are prone to local, seasonal movements mainly in response to rain and food availability.

Among the population variations, three subspecies are recognized. The nominate race philippinus is found through much of mainland India while burmanicus is found eastwards into Southeast Asia. The population in southwest India is darker above and referred to as subspecies travancoreensis.

These are sparrow-sized (15 cm) and in their non-breeding plumage, both males and females resemble female house sparrows. They have a stout conical bill and a short square tail. Non-breeding males and females look alike, dark brown streaked fulvous buff above, plain (unstreaked) whitish fulvous below, eyebrow long and buff coloured, bill is horn coloured and no mask. Breeding males have a bright yellow crown, dark brown mask, blackish brown bill, upper parts are dark brown streaked with yellow, with a yellow breast and cream buff below..[Wikipedia].[Photo© - Raju Karia].

Decisions, Decisions

Sometimes I have a more difficult time figuring out how to process an image than I do taking it. Not always, but often.Now this particular one, I'll likely still do something with. But this is straight out of camera. And I'm diggin' it just the way it is. Obviously, Stephanie does not make things easy. :-)

Attack!

This is a big male mandrill in Ouwehands Dierenpark in Rhenen. Amazing animals. The colors and the face. The blue is amazing. His butt is blue too LOL.

He was very peaceful and quiet. Only intervened when the young in the group were in a fight. I had to edit him this way for fun, but that is not who he really is. Although I don't think you should start a fight with him.

Schmetterling / butterfly (392) revised version

Und ein weitere Überarbeitung eines älteren Fotos. Dieses Foto habe ich bereits 2011 im heimischen Garten aufgenommen. Und wie so häufig ohne Stativ und ohne große Vorbereitungen.

And a further revision of an older photos. This photo I have already taken in 2011 in the home garden. And as so often without a tripod and without great preparations.

Schwalbenschwanz │ Swallowtail
Papilio machaon

Zusammen mit den Segelfaltern erscheint der Schwalbenschwanz schon im April bei uns in Unterfranken. Die erste von 3 Generationen ist wieder gut gestartet und man kann den Falter in der Luft sehr leicht vom Segelfalter unterscheiden, da sein Flug weitaus Hektischer und weniger anmutend ist. Treffen ein Segelfalter Männchen und ein Schwalbenschwanz aufeinander, liefern sie sich rasante Luftkämpfe und bieten eine Flugshow der Extraklasse. Hat der Segelfalter den Eindringling verscheucht, tanzt er in der Luft und überwacht wieder sein Revier. Beide saugen früh am Morgen gerne an Blüten und davon gibt es jetzt im Frühling reichlich. Von diesen beiden Ritterfaltern eine gute Aufnahme zu bekommen ist immer wieder ein ganz besonderes Erlebnis für mich.
