Weaving the Round — or Not

Here is guest photographer Martin Greene with a photo on the theme of ROUND, with a difference:

Martin explains:  “The top of the bowl that the weaver bird is sitting on is round.  Weaver birds, also known as weaver finches,  get their name because of their elaborately woven round nests (the most elaborate of any birds).”

This bird evidently took the easy way out and went directly for a nice round bowl. Martin photographed it at the Tloma Lodge in Tanzania. Other extraordinary animal and bird photos from that photographic safari can be seen on Martin’s website. (How about a charging elephant?)

    Very engaging and interesting shot with the seam in the wood under the irregular smooth bowl and bright active bird. I took a sneak peek at the photographers web. His photos are beautiful. He also deserves an award for the courage to be so familiar with the great beasts!

      Therese, thanks for commenting —
      I bet Martin will weigh in on his own, too.

    • Thanks, Therese –
      While I was certainly safe with this bird, and I do appreciate your award for courage, so long as one stays in a safari vehicle ‘the great beasts’ ignore you. Just don’t go for a walk outside as then you’re liable to be some beast’s meal.
