White-bellied Seedeater in a Hibiscus

Another shot from my hibiscus bush, this time featuring a little bird I don't see much around here, a male white-bellied seedeater (Sporophila leucoptera).

This hibiscus bush is about 3 meters tall and about 2 meters in diameter, and it's exploding with blossoms right now. I am always looking at it, trying to get inspired to photograph it in a different way. It's tough because the shape of the blossom with that beautiful long style as well as the amazing red color which always causes problems in post-production.

Images of the flowers themselves can be found here:
