This guy has to be considered in the top 5 most beautiful hummingbirds in the world. What an absolute stunner!!

I found this guy feeding on some roadside flowers in the mountains and managed to get a few nice frames that really show off the birds incredible tail. I hope that you enjoy them!

Lots more to come from Bolivia  Cheesy

Fabulous, just fabulous.
I thought the macaw was on LSD but this bird defies description.
Magnificent capture.

I look forward to seeing your other offerings.

The end of the tail is slightly soft in terms of the focus. You'll have to go back & take it again. Or not.

Stunning photo. Just like all the others really.
