Flame Tanager male

The male and the female of the species are amongst the most colorful pairs in Central America. Real easy to over saturate this one.

Nice profile and the DOF with the perch is nice…

The pose is very nice especially with both eyes visible. Love the color and the background (and the perch is great, too). Very nicely done.

Excellent, Davis. Detail, pose, head turn and perch are all top notch. Nice to have a productive trip like that to go back to when we get a weather pattern like this.

I like the detail. And good job on the exposure as I am guessing in might have been easy to blow the REDs out.

really like the foreground and background - gives it an ethereal feel

Like this, David. Love the detail and colors with a great blended background. Great shot.

Nice bird with amazing colors. The pose, with the head turned is very pleasant as well. The OOF background is great as well. Only things would be the branch, which is rather bulky in comparison with the bird, but other than that a very fine image ! Cheers, Hans
