Hello Luis,
This is a very nice capture of this hummingbird with very good POV, composition and details. It has amazing colors.Regards Sigi

The bird and the background have matching color tones, but the bird stands out sharply due to exceptional focus, Luis.
This is yet another adorable bird picture from you.

Hello Luis,
Another gorgeous hummingbird image from you....how I miss Costa Rica!!! Stunning detail and lovely eye contact. The natural lighting is great and the exposure is perfect. A tad bit of noise in the BG, but this can easily be removed.

Hello Luis,

Beautiful photograph of this Hummingbird. Very nice color and well POV.
Thanks for sharing,

Excellent diagonal composition, with the bird a bit off centre. The muted colours work well and the bird and its perch are well separated from the blurry background.
