[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a hummingbird. (Family: Trochilidae; Genus: Amazilia; Species: Lactea. In order to obtain further information about the hummingbirds, refer to www.wordiq.com/definition/Hummingbird).

When I took this photo, I was in fact trying to shoot a bee, when, suddenly, this hummingbird came around. Of course, I couldn’t miss the chance. I tried to catch it while it was beating rapidly its wings, but that wasn’t possible. Anyway, here it is.

Livio, Lucky break to capture this charachter. Nice image. They have wonderful colours.

Much better than a bee. I love these hummingbird, but they are very difficult to capture!

I dared a workshop and I did the following. I cloned out all the light spots that were over exposed and I adjusted the levels. Having done that I used a closer crop on the bird. Hope you like it

Thanks for posting
