Ode to the glittering throated emerald hummingbird

This is one of the most common hummingbirds that we find around our lodge. Due to the concentration of flowers that they absolutely love they happen to haclose to the house so the babies and adults are quite tame. They let me get super close with my 50mm lens to capture these fantastic images of one of the smallest yet fastest birds around.

    Hello, Irene, no need to remind me who you are.it would be hard to forget the days we spent at Otorongo .
    I don’t know if it is my slow connection but I do not see the tweaked image, I would love to see it though!
