Royal Sunangel (Peru)
« on: March 09, 2012, 10:23:20 AM »

Perhaps not the most spectacular of the 300+ species of hummingbirds in the world. Nevertheless the Royal Sunangel is certainly unique! Restricted to a small area of northern Peru and Southern Ecuador these birds are such a beautiful shade of deep royal blue. I was thrilled to find one after a few days searching :)

A lovely image as always. The fellow looks like he knows he is handsome.  Being hummingbirds, they must be small? But the depth of field fall off makes his tail almost a part of the bokeh. Maybe one stop less would have his tail in focus.
