I have captured this 'Long-Tailed Widow Bird '(Euplectes progne) at Marieval Bird Sanctuary early in the morning . Due to its big tail, it's very difficult to frame.

It's a male one and it looks he is very proud of his gorgeous tail . Due to bit cloudy weather light wasn't such great but enough to get a decent picture .
Adult breeding males are almost entirely black with orange - red and white shoulders.

This species found in Angola 佞, Botswana 攻, Kenya 埠, Lesotho 梗, Swaziland 賅, Zambia 遲 etc.

Hi Srikumat,it's a very goos suprise this beautiful bird that i never seen before,the pic is excellent,just the end of tail is a bit blurred but the right part is absolutely perfect, lucky light for a very bright result. Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano

Hi Srikumar,
I was hoping for exactly such a picture from a Widow Bird: its long tail ondulating in flight, you caught it so well, congratulations. In the iconography of the Egyptian Old Empire you find winged and feathered Snakes. I always saw in this an allusion to Widow birds (don't take it serious, I'm no egyptologist).
Greetings, Dieterich

Hello Srikumar,
eye-catchingly dynamic capture of this exquisite long-tailed bird in the dim light of early morning.
Congratulations for you patience and success. Thank you!
With best regards,
Peter
