Hello Luis,
I love these colorful little birds, this one is certainly an eye catcher. How neat to capture this particular species gazing upward like this clearly displaying it's gorgeous starthroat markings. Perfectly exposed and displaying exceptional detail. Colors are well saturated and nicely balanced.
