Green-crowned Brilliant (male)
The metallic green color tones of its plumage
it is giving a special charm to this species
of the hummingbirds, your POV and its eye-contact
are also contributing to that charm, TFS
Another truly interesting capture of this tiny prince with all the goodness of his
colorful gingerbread shield perfectly captured in a instantaneous exposure. 1/2500s seems fast enough to freeze the motion of this ever busy character. Good day Ron Warner ...Greetings from the cold ( it's a Winter here ) South Africa, take care and please, keep on taking Great Pictures like this one!
Excellent capture.POV,vivid colors,sharpness,exposure,pose of bird and composition are wonderful.Best regards Siggi

Hi Ron, you captured the metallic colours very well. You are very fortunate, it is not often that a hummingbird poses for a photo like this. TFS Deon.

Hi Ron,what a incredible metallic green,this bird is ready to go in a disco..eheheheh....magnificent capture and fantastic quality of details and colors,and a very intresting specie too,very rare to see on TN,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano
Can Hummingbirds get more brilliant than this one. Cant really imagine anything more brilliant but I guess Costa Rica might just produce another surprise. The iridescent Green is like nothing I have seen before.And you have captured it brilliantly..Never easy to capture these shiny colours.
