What a wonderful picture you've taken of this munia Arijit. Very well done.

Can you tell me; would this be subspecies acuticauda? It looks a bit different to the one currently on Opus, which is from China, so I'd like to put this picture on the article as well.

I think I'm right, but would like some confirmation.

Many thanks for sharing this attractive guy with us.
