Scaly-breasted Munia Closeup


I saw three juvenile Scaly-breasted Munias feeding on the ground who took no notice of my presence at all, giving me the opportunity to get several closeup shots. 

Unlike the adult birds, the brown colour of the immature birds is not as dark, and the bill is not as black. 





The younger juvenile birds don’t even have many of the scaly marks.






While feeding happily, these 3 birds came so close to my camera that I was able to take these portraits. I find them extremely cute!

Pewno to co znalazły do jedzenia było pyszne i nie zwracały na Ciebie uwagi. No i dobrze, bo są świetne zdjęcia z bliska.Trzecie od dołu jest wspaniałe. Pozdrawiam.*** I suppose what you have found the food was delicious and did not pay attention to you. Well, well, because they are great pictures of bliska.Trzecie from the bottom is great. Yours.

They are all such great pictures,
but I like the larger portraits the best.You can really see their
bills and bright eyes in detail.
You are absolutely right they are
so cute.:)

Neat Series, like the way the plumage of the juveniles blend in their habitat...Thomas

Wonderful close-ups. They do look pretty cute and have expressive faces with that solid looking bill.
