Chestnut-breasted Mannikin

Chestnut-breasted Mannikin (Image ID 40543)
CommentIt was late afternoon,a few Chestnut breasted Manikins had been splashing in water below and landing on perches above to observe the others. They were all scruffy. I liked this image with the untidy bird, the spiderweb just catching the light and the spider sitting in wait on the vertical branch.This bird was looking back at me trying to decide if I was enough of a threat to fly off.
