Cuban Emerald (Chlorostilbon ricordii)

This is not a usual high quality hummer flight freeze image as most of the bird lovers can find it on the net. I used a bare camera and a 600mm lens to record this bird during my birding trip in Cuba. There are a lots of distracting elements and quite a wrong light direction but finally this produced an interesting effect. Personally I like to see the bill in the bloom which became transparent by the sun.
