Absolutely great with perfect compo and great background.
One question: why look hummingbirds-eyes often so silvery?

Ils ne sont pas faciles à prendre en photo et tu as réussis haut la main!!! Bravo pour ces détails, la prise de vue, les couleurs, la composition et la profondeur de champs! Superbe!
