[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This common hummingbird (Chlorostilbon lucidus) is not showing us the amazing iridescent green feathers which have their surface, because he has fluffy plumage to aerate your skin and release the heat your body generates small moving their wings to fly at the speed of a hornet . The inner feathers exposing now, are not as showy, bright green just appreciate them here in your head. We are in the presence of a male (the female we have whitish throat and chest).

Hello Hernan,
Colour and details on plumage is really interesting.Excellent captured with stunning focus on subject's eye with attractive natural ambiance.Good use of light with splendid sharpness.
Thanks for shAring,
Regards and have a nice day,

Great to see a Common Hummingbird sitting placidly on a branch and not doing its usual act of fluttering its wings, Hernan.
You have got the colours on those shiny feathers in their best possible aspect.
Thanks for sharing this prize shot.

Hello Hernan,

Hope you are well. This is absolutely beautiful, the shot as well as the bird. Like most hummingbirds it has a colourful plumage and a lovely red beak for drinking nectar from the flowers. The angle and posture are both perfect.Thanks a lot for sharing a top class photo, take care,

warm regards/Abid
