[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a white-necked jacobin (florisuga mellivora) from the Adventrure farm close to Plymouth on Tobago.

I love the way the angle of light totally changes the reflection from the sometimes almost metallic looking feathers.

The Adventure farm is a operated by a private family but is open to all visitors. It is one of the best places on Tobago for Hummingbird photography. I will post a few more...... ;o)

Hello Bengt,
What an attractive hummingbird you have presented to us. I saw many types of hummingbirds while visiting Costa Rica two years, but I never viewed one with colors quite like this. Perfectly photographed showing off it's beautiful plumage in exceptionally sharp focus and gorgeous colors. Well done!!
