Nicely captured in natural light. That said, I think flash would have helped in this case with the angle of the wings showing blurred features in sharp contrast to the sharp body and flowers.

Great-looking hummingbird species, I also like the beautiful flower and complementing BG.

I love the natural light. Refreshing to see a hummingbird photo, especially one with such nice colors, without flash "crunchiness". A very pleasing to the eye frame.
