Masked Flowerpiercer
Diglossa cyanea

Another beautiful and colorful bird from the Cloudforest on the slopes of Volcan Pichincha (seen at 3200-3500mt). Captured in the morning,in sunny weather when we were not surrounded with the clouds yet.

The masked flowerpiercer Diglossa cyanea is a common passerine bird found in the tropical regions of the Andes and is one of the more frequently seen small birds of higher elevation forests, especially from north Ecuador (Ridgely& Tudor 1989). The bird’s plumage is ultramarine blue with a black mask extending over the forehead and has red eyes.

Great picture with perfect sharpness of the head and very nice colours

merhaba Selen hanım,
bu güzel kuş ve fotoğraf için ilk yorum benden olması da bir şans.
TN'nin kılavuzu klasik olmasın yorumlar diyor ama gelinde bu kadar net, kompozisyonu güzel ve muhteşem güzel bir kuşun bu kadar güzel tespitine başka bir şey söyleyin. fotoğraf ancak tek kelime söyleyebilir "mükemmel".
elinize sağlık.
bize de görme fırsatı verdiğiniz için teşekkürler.

Kuşun gözleri çok etkileyici. O bölgelerdeki hayvanlar umarım insanla çok sık karşılaşmıyorlardır ve kolayca yaklaşıp fotoğraflayabiliyorsunuzdur. Çok kıaliteli güzel bir foto. Tebrikler.

Good picture with deatils. Thanks.

Hi Selen,
Here you go again with these beautifully coloured birds making me quite envious especially with the quality of the pictures.
Well done and TFS.

Wow, once a gain a magnificent photo from you! Your trip seems to have been very successfull!

Perfect pose crop and sharpness makes this amazing bird full justice!

However the colours are a bit bright side on my screen, I think that you maybe could lower the exposure a little little bit. Do you use a colour calibrated screen?
