Hola Hernán,
Buena captura de este bello pájaro. Me gustan mucho la composición y el fondo, que realzan aún más la belleza de este pájaro.
Saludos, José m.

Hello Hernan,
Nice color and good detail, I like the POV.
Good exposure, although some of the underside has been lost to shadow. I would've put the bird a bit higher in the frame, less space top on the comp.
Well done.

Hello Hernan!

Wonderful composition using a splendid POV! I think that if you used the flash, you would have get less dark zones...

Good job and TFs!

Hello Herman,
Very fine capture of this little Hummingbird in brilliant green colour and with a red bill. Nice soft background and I like how you've included the thistles as a contrast.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Hernan,
A great shot of this hummingbird feeding.
The colours are very vivid.
A good POV and nice clear detail,good catchlight in the eye too.
Excellent,well done TFS

Hi Hernan
Wow, what iridescent colour your hummingbird has. You've captured it's dark green colour so well. I've never seen a hummingbird feed on a thistle but now I know they do. POV and DOF is great. Well done.
TFS Janice
