I think this is a white-necked jacobin, but I'm not completely sure. I took this photo at the Arnos vale hotel. For more detailed info about hummingbirds I refer to previous postings.

Wow, Zeno, you really nailed this one. : )
Absolutely fantastic sharpness and light.
The colors are just gorgeous, and you did a great job capturing the metallic sheen of the feathers. Wonderful POV and clean BG.
TFS. : )

Hi Zeno

Great shot yet again, the detail is nice and sharp and the colours are beautiful and are nicely complimented by the BG, you really managed to catch a lot of great shots on your trip to Tobago.

Regards Hilary :)

Bulls Eye!
I can't fault this one and would say that your White- necked Jacobin is one of the best pictures on this site! (You can just make out the edge the white part of the neck above the wing)

Ha Zeno,
geweldige foto! Heb het ook vaker geprobeerd maar kwam nooit tot dit resultaat. Wat ik mooi vind dat je gekozen hebt voor een niet heel korte sluitertijd. De bewegende vleugel geeft mooie aktie aan de vogel.

Bonjour Zeno!

Excellente prise de cette oiseau mouche. Bravo pour les couleurs et la netteté.


Hi Zeno !
Wow, this is a wonderful in-flight shot ! You have perfectly frozen the hummingbird. Excellent details and beautiful bright colors, excellent composition and POV, and a splendid blurred BG which highlights the bird very nicely. Very well done !

Hi Zeno
Great inflight shot. Excellent colours, sharpnes, details, light, DOF and POV.
Well done my friend


Hi Zeno,
Nice colorful shot of your hummer with the metallics lit-up very well..
Great framing, POV, detail, and a lovely BG as well :)
Some slight OE of the underparts & sharpening artifacts, not bad though.
Do you use raw format? Just curious..
Well done & TFS!

Nice pic. I like the colors of the bird which is well captured.

Another very nice hummingbird shot.
Great background and composition.


A very nice capture considering how fast its wings moves. very nice BG too.
