[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken at Blue Bayou, on the Island of Utila, this is a small male Canivet's Emerald (Chlorostilbon canvetii). The Emerald is a year-round resident and is quite tame, allowing close approach and touching on occassion. These are curious, friendly hummers. The Canivet's Emerald is one of only two hummingbirds on Utila (other is Green Breasted Mango) and are regularly and easily seen in town at feeders and on hibiscus and other flowers.

Critiques [Translate]

Hello Martin, welcome to TN. You show us a very pretty bird here, but it isn't very sharp and is hard to see.

I have done a workshop for you to try and sharpen it a bit more, and also to show you how to place the bird not so much in the centre.

For a first photo it isn't too bad, but like most of us when we started, you have a lot to learn. So if you are open to help and accept critiques, you should learn a lot.
