Blue-chested Hummingbird

Blue-chested Hummingbird: Rainforest Discovery Center, Pipeline Road, Panama, July 2022 — there were Blue-chested Hummingbirds coming to the feeders at the base of the Canopy Tower, so, even though it was a new hummer for me this trip, I was not surprised to see it at the Rainforest Discovery Center on Pipeline Road. They seem to be relatively abundant, and among the more aggressive defenders of feeders. And, they seem to have favored perches where they return time and time again. This one was determined that I get its “best side” in the photo while it did its display. Sony Rx10iv at 567mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications and multi-frame noise reduction. Processed in Pixelmator Photo and Apple Photos. Nominal exposure: ISO 6400 @ f4 @ 1/200th. Plus .7EV exposure compensation.
