Hi Luis,
What a beautiful hummer.
The exposure is just right to bring out the bright colors and the iridescence of the feathers.
Super sharp details and a fantastic pose. : )
I remember the hummingbird gardens in Costa Rica. Amazing places!
TFS. : )

Nice colors in nice bird, good composition.


Wow...what a beauty you have captured....nice and sharp and like the green Bg...

Hola Luis,

Otra joya en miniatura!... aquí tenemos algunos similares, pero nunca había visto ese patrón de cola blanca y el soberbio verde esmeralda en la cabeza y pecho. Definitivamente un ave bendecida con una belleza especial. Excelente aprovechamiento de la rama transversal para componer la foto de manera magistral!... el fondo es perfecto, muy difuso y con una luz adecuada para el conjunto. Buen logro con f/4.5, tú y esa Sony se complementan muy bien!

Saludos y feliz fin de semana.


Hello Luis,
Splendid photo in superb clear colours. The leaf is a bit distracting, but the rest of the photo is marvelous. Excellent sharpness and OOF BG. Fantastic POV and pose with eye-contact. What a beauty!
