We encountered this This White tufted-sunbeam (agleaectis castelnaudi), while 8 of us went hiking and birding from the Abramalaga pass to Ollantaitambo was so busy overlooking for hummingbirds daring to enter his or her territorythat he didnt care at all our prescence.

This species is endemic to Peru where is patchily distributed, found in more hunmid portions of intermontane forest between 2600-4100m (Birds of Peru 2007)

Hello Simon,

Lovely moment with open wing, also the eye is perfect.
You did very well, I can enjoy of these picture.


Hola Simón,
Muy buena luz, muy buen detalle; hacer esto con una bridge indica talento. Excelente recorte. Buen trabajo.

Hi Simon,
Thanks for liking my recent picture and leaving your observations on it.
This Sunbeam you shot in Peru is a good looking bird. Considering that it was unsettled on the branch with its wings fluttering, you have managed a fairly sharp image. The head, in particular, has been well captured.
Well done and TFS.
