Taken in the Bella Vista Cloud Forest in Ecuador. Light was very poor so am pleased with the result. This was at the max range of the Sigma 70-300 lens..but I was standing only 10 feet away - hand held - so glad I went for this one before we went away!

There were lots of humming birds around at the sugar water feeders, their wings sound like bees buzzing..wonderful colours and fascinating to watch. this one was still for about 3 secs!! Smile

I believe its a Buff-Tailed Coronet

Thanks for looking, please try LARGE if you have time

A beautifully composed image - I love the diagonal of the twig.

Congratulations on getting a shot at all under the circumstances!

I have loaded a mod with a few suggestions.

Removed noise using Noise Ninja; removed the bright areas by cloning; used a curves adjustment to improve contrast and reduce glare. Re framing, - avoid using the same tone for a frame as the shot, it detracts from the subject, - try a plain white or off white, or even black border.


Hope the mod works for you,


regards


Willie

A fine shot of this colourful bird, it must have been a real pleasure to see one in the wild
