This is an excellent capture of a green-crowned Brilliant, with good sharpness and well illuminated by flash in the poor light. I might have tried to brighten it a little but it's a minor point.
The composition and pose are fine too.
Thanks for sharing an image that probably is of a new species on TN.

What a cheeky looking bird. I like the way the face is directed to the front but the eye is slightly looking at you. A beautiful hummingbird with dazzling colours. I like the tiny white spot in the black of the bird's eye, and the patch of white just above the eye. A lovely presentation with good focus, fine details and natural colours. That water droplet at the end of the branch really does it for me. Like always this was a pleasure to look at. Thanks for sharing.

Great image of the hummingbird, you've used the flash in a great way giving a beautiful light on the bird. Excellent sharpness overall, amazing light in the eye and I also love this little drop on the branch!
