From my trip to Ecuador.

The golden-breasted puffleg (Eriocnemis mosquera) is native to Colombia and Ecuador, and its beautiful plumage includes quirky tufts of white feathers over its legs that give it the “puffleg” name. The bird’s iridescent green and gold plumage is equally striking, making it one of the most beautiful South American hummingbirds.

Hi Peter!
Superb shot of this beautiful hummingbird. Great sharpness, a perfect POV and an excellent DOF. The amazing colors on this little bird are like printed "Silk Banarasi Saree". My Indian friends Ramthakur and SriKumar can judge it better :). Thanks for sharing this lovely composition,
Best Regards,

Bonjour Peter,
Une très belle lumière qui fait resplendir de splendides couleurs mais une profondeur de champ insuffisante ou du moins une mauvaise mise au point faite sur un premier plan (la petite branche) trop éloigné du sujet.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
