I took this shot of Village weaver at Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya.


Village weaver bird (Ploceus cucullatus) is a small bird species belonging to the family Ploceidae. It is found in various habitats across sub-Saharan Africa, including the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya.


The village weaver bird is a highly social bird, known for its elaborate nest-building abilities. Male weaver birds construct complex, woven nests from grass and twigs, which they hang from the branches of trees or other structures. The nests are often communal, with several males constructing their nests close together.


Female weaver birds choose their mates based on the quality of their nests, with males that build larger and more intricate nests being preferred. Once a female has chosen a mate, she lays her eggs in his nest and the male takes on the responsibility of incubating the eggs and caring for the young.


In the Masai Mara, village weaver birds can be seen building their nests in the trees and shrubs that dot the savannah landscape. They are often heard before they are seen, with their distinctive calls carrying across the grasslands. Visitors to the Masai Mara can observe these fascinating birds as they go about their daily activities, building their nests, foraging for food, and caring for their young.


All digital purchased pictures are 300 dpi resolution.


A resolution of 300 dpi (dots per inch) is considered to be the standard resolution for printing high-quality images. DPI refers to the number of dots that can be printed in a one-inch row. When you have a high dpi, it means that the printer can produce a higher level of detail in the image, resulting in sharper and crisper prints.


The importance of 300 dpi resolution for a picture is significant, especially when you want to print it. If you're printing an image with a lower resolution, such as 72 dpi, it may appear blurry or pixelated when printed. This is because the printer cannot produce enough dots to accurately represent the image, resulting in a loss of quality.
