Hi everyone
I have been a wildlife photographer for 4 years but am a new birding enthusiast. I enjoy birding travels a lot to see, hear, identify and photograph more bird species. As a matter of fact, I just returned from Quito Ecuador and while I was there I managed to have taken a photo of this latin america jewel sparkling violetear hummingbird.
