Long-Tailed Widow Bird (Male)
|[Ligne directrice - Note] Note du photographe|
|I have captured this 'Long-Tailed Widow Bird ð¦'(Euplectes progne) at Marieval Bird ð¦ Sanctuary early in the morning . Due to its big tail, it's very difficult to frame. |
It's a male one and it looks he is very proud of his gorgeous tail ð. Due to bit cloudy â
weather light wasn't such great but enough to get a decent picture âº.
Adult breeding males are almost entirely black with orange - red and white shoulders.
This species found in Angola ð¦ð´, Botswana ð§ð¼, Kenya ð°ðª, Lesotho ð±ð¸, Swaziland ð¸ð¿, Zambia ð¿ð² etc.

I was hoping for exactly such a picture from a Widow Bird: its long tail ondulating in flight, you caught it so well, congratulations. In the iconography of the Egyptian Old Empire you find winged and feathered Snakes. I always saw in this an allusion to Widow birds (don't take it serious, I'm no egyptologist).
eye-catchingly dynamic capture of this exquisite long-tailed bird in the dim light of early morning.
Congratulations for you patience and success. Thank you!
With best regards,
