[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The White-necked Jacobin is a very colorful hummingbird. I saw this species in Trinidad in the Asa Wright Centre (an absolute must for every birdwatcher!!)
This bird is distributed from southern Mexico through Central America to Colombia and the Amazon and Orinoco Basins and it is found mainly below 900 m. It is a bird of forest canopy and borders and is usally seen feeding high up on trees.
The male, seen in this photo, has bright green upperpparts, a blue head and chest, a white crescent on the nape with white on the belly.

Hoi Zeno,
waanzinnige soort, met veel contrast tussen het wit en de blauwtinten (+ redelijk hard licht neem ik aan). Toch goed op de foto

That is very nice bird with wonderful colour

Hi Zeno
Perfect shot.
Great sharpness & amaizing colours.
Also very good composition.

Hallo Zeno,
Wat een mooi shot met een parelmoer glans, geweldig.
Het ziet er zo rustig uit, maar ik neem aan dat het toch wel tijd gekost heeft om het zo op de foto te krijgen.

Hello Zeno

What a beautiful little humingbird! I think its a much rarer pose on TN...usually we get to see an in-flight...finally one with the bird resting :)
The colors anre simply amazing, the details crispy clear and the POV excellent.
Also very good lighting and well composed.

Bravo and TFS

Hello Zeno,
The details and colours of the White-necked Jacobin couldn't be displayed better and you must have credit for that. For this reason this is a great shot.
It's just a pity that these birds are so hard to photograph without the presence of the bright red feeders.
TFS, best wishes, Ivan

Amazing colors!

Hello Zeno,
what a georgeous bird, the pose and the details are so beautiful. Very nice DOF, colors and exposure.

Hi Zeno

Nicely composed shot. Very good saturation of colour. Nice camera work.

Nicely done. Good color, excellent detail. Quite different from the ones found around here.

Hi Zeno....great capture from the Asa Wright. I have posted a couple of photos I took at the centre in '06, and it looks like we different on the name of this species...I suspect that you are correct, though. Good work.
