[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The overexposure upon the flowers is, I guess, a minor impediment. Anyway, the photo is here.

The hummingbird is a tiny one: approximately 5 centimeters. I have other pictures of him, showing him landed on a wire. On them, his details can be observed closely. If I decided to post the one which is here, it’s because here the bird is in his natural environment.

Tu eras el que no sabia fotografía?
Gran captura en vuelo de este difícil espécimen.
Veo que tienes la suerte de tener Lantanas (flores) cerca como para encontrar estas escenas.
Excelente agudeza sobre todo con una velocidad de 1/200 con bello colorido.
Me extraña la leve sobre exposicion sobre las flores... pero no influye sobre el cuerpo del ave.

do you were the one that nonwise photography?
Great capture in flight of this difficult specimen.
I see that you have the luck to close have Lantanas (flowers) like finding these scenes.
Excellent sharpness mainly with a speed of 1/200 with beautiful colorful.
The slight over expose is strange on the flowers... but it does not influence the body of the bird.

Hi Livio, it certainly is a very good piece of work. Very well done to capture this hummingbird. Excellent.

Very good capture of a difficult subject, especially at this sort of speed, the body is very nicley sharp, still worth posting even with the OE flower, TFS

Deu vontade de dizer uma palavra impublicável..... três para ser mais exata..hehehe.. acho que me entendeu..
Realmente, esqueça a exposição..que poderia ter corrigido com levels ou curves... conseguiu e pronto... Mas um pouco mais rápida a velocidade teria conseguido tudo... com 1/500, a asa estaria nítida e a luz, ok..

Pelo valor, você continua usando a câmera no automático, não? Mude isto!

Wow! The hummingbird is almost invisible on thumbnail. Maybe flowers are little overexposured but in overall it is great picture!

great action shot of a difficult subject. Don't worry about the overexposed flowers, the emerald subject is worth the small problem.

Beautiful Image ! great green

Livio, Very colorful frame that is an eye-grabber. Good details in your hummer. Slightly over-exposed flowers aside, these birds are difficult & you've done very well here! I would suggest next time try to catch this bird with plenty of light & a faster shutter speed (shutter priority) for a little sharper image. Well done!

Well done Livio. The detail is very good. The OE flowers, bramble bush I think, is really not a bother to me at all.
Excellent job.
