Hola Jorge Javier,
It's lovely to see this beautiful bird again through your lens. Seems like you almost went to the same place :o)
Can't wait to see the hummingbirds from Pichincha!
Gracias y saludos,

Hello Jorge Javier,
Excellent photo of this Masked Flowerpiercer. Maybe the colours are a bit dark; the pose, the sharp details and the composition are fantastic. Good focus on the head.

Hola Jorge.
Muy bella la foto. Exelente iluminacion y alta nitidez. La pose muy fina donde se muestran los bellos atributos de este Pinchaflor.
Saludos y gracias por compartir esta belleza.

Hallo Jorge
What a delightful image of this Masked Flowerpiercer. This is a beautiful bird and you have captured it in a perfect close-up pose. The dark and vividly coloured plumage is beautiful very bright and the details of the beak and red eye are displayed well. The framing and composition is great. A pleasant image with great natural colours and light. Just a pity that the tailpiece is not as much in focus as the rest of the bird. Thanks for sharing. Kind regards

Beautiful Bird and Image..

Hello Jorge,

Very nice picture of a "first-time see" bird for me.

Excellent exposition and POV. You choose a big aperture in order to get the focus on the head (which aperture have you used?). Usually I prefer to have legs in focus too but here, it works well for me. Nice details on the feathers.

Good shot and TFS,

Que decir de esta captura, lo más sorprendente son las condiciones en que la tomaste, el link que te nuestra Selene dispara a iso 400 y se ve que hace un solajero de espanto, me imagino tu con esos valores,lo que habrias hecho... Espero que tú y Cristina lo hayan pasado bien.
Te escribo una letritas mañana,
muchos saludos, perdona la tardanza
