Hermit

The magnificent Hermit Hummingbird Canela is one of the most beautiful Hummingbirds of Misiones, sucking on the original flower Heliconia. What I liked about this picture is the composition forming the particular form of the Heliconia with the Hermit, transparent wings covering his head in contrast with the solid black body and delicate fingers that cut into the background. It is an image with mystery.
