Photographer's Note

Let's make it clear, I'm not into birds photography. I know nothing about them and I would lie if I say that I'm interested in these little beast. I found them nice like most of the people, period.

But when I arrived in South Africa, Wanda introduced me to the weaver (she knows every birds, plants and animals...) and I have to say that I began to observed them since then.

They are incredibly fascinating to watch, as they are endlessly building elaborate nests. Usually the male birds weave the nests and use them as a form of display to lure prospective females. When the nests haven't been visited or adopted by the female, the nest is destroyed and new ones are being built. It's a process that goes on for 6 or 7 months, until they leave for winter.
