Species: Vitelline Masked Weaver | Location: Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tanzania

I was on a safari to Tanzania. During the lunch break I was wandering around the camp when I saw a weaver building a nest. He would add a strand, then sit on a branch and call, probably trying to attract a female. After one sequence, he started doing gymnastics, so I grabbed the shot.

About The Photographer

I'm an avid traveler who is trying to see as many areas of the world as possible. My goal is to see these environments before they are significantly impacted by climate change. I was shooting Nikon, but switched to Canon in 2014. Macros of flowers and plants were my first SLR subjects, but once I purchased longer lenses I've added birds, mammals and pretty much anything that moves. After each trip I make presentations in the local community, to try to build awareness of these areas and the issues that they face. Hopefully this will encourage more people to contribute to the support of these fragile environments
