Another dream bird of mine. This year, after cold period in Canada with Snowy owls, we went to Cuba and had some amazing birding there with 130 species in 7 days. Cuban tody stole the hearts with Bee hummingbird.

Hello Emin,
Awesome shot of this gorgeous little bird. I still remember the first time I saw a photo of one of these unique looking birds here on TN. I thought the colors had to be oversaturated because they were so bright and vivid. I checked out more images on the web and realized the bird is as beautiful as it looked in the original photo.
You have done a wonderful job of photographing this eye stunning specimen for us. The focus is super sharp showing excellent detail. Great eye contact and lovely colors. The exposure is perfect.

Hi Emin,i been in Cuba 5 times but i never meet this fantastic beauty! It's really a dream,and not just for you. And you caught in a great way this lucky opportunity,the pic is fantastic,great sharpness and bright colors,the pic of the day on TN! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hello Emin,
Beautiful bird and excellent quality. Like such BG. I can count its feathers and cristal clear eye! Excellent!!!

But don't like framing 100%. The way bird is looking at, not much space at all! Too tight upper and lower frame. To me a vertical frame could have been more effective.
Thanks for sharing,
Best wishes and have a nice WE,
