Ploceus capensis 2

Digital scientific illustration. Hand drawn and painted by pen and tablet.

Cape weaver, Ploceus capensis, male adult but young or not dominant individual. The eyes are characteristic of adult males, but it has just a few black feathers unlike dominant adult males. I got amazed by the deep in their eyes. I enjoyed everyday watching them (the males) building nests not stoping almost all the year, even with strong winds.
