Hello Emin,
What a jewel! Excellent photo in great sharpness and details. Beautiful colours and a fantastic composition. Attractive pose.

Hi Emin. You don't get a better side profile of an animal. all the colours make it quite beautiful. The gold in the bird really stands out. It's rare to see orange legs and feet as well. It's nice seeing all the colour. TFS Trevor

Hi Emin!
Great shot of this lovely bird in very good sharpness and great details. I haven't seen a photo of Streaked Spiderhunter before. It is indeed a lovely bird to look at. Very good lateral POV, beautiful natural colors and great contrast with BG. Thanks for sharing this colorful composition,
Best Regards,

Such a beautiful bird Emin and captured nicely on a bottle brush plan I think. The flash has worked well here.
