Very nice. What are those? The Hummingbirds around here (Arizona) are not as colorful.

The first shot is beautiful and well composed. I don't have no problem with the out of focus parts of his body, 'cos the interest is all there in his little face, nice one.

I do think the image would have more impact if it was cropped square, but still leavin' space on the left side.

the first one is unknown to me.

the second is a violet saberwing. a moderately large and extremely aggressive species.

These were both photographed in Monteverde, Costa Rica

Shockingly sharp. I've been looking at the fist capture for about 5 mins straight now...and I imagine I'll probably come back and look some more. The colors are just that good.
