A lovely in-flight pose you have caught, Michael. : )
The details are sooo sharp, and you handled the light very well.
Love the iridescence on the feathers.
Perfect DOF giving the hummer a 3 D feel.
TFS. : )

Hi Michael, very nicely done. You've frozen the action and provided great depth of field to blur out the background. The detail and colour are fabulous. Can you provide us with some specs, i.e. speed, aperture, lens etc.?

This is a fine in flight capture of a some young or female Hummingbird with good lighting, sharpness and fine BG.
I would have composed it to have more space in front of the hummingbird and it would be good if you could try to define the species for us Europeans, as most of us know little about them.
TFS, regards, Ivan

Superb action shot, very nice composition and I love the fabulous pose with the wings frozen and I like the way the Hummingbirds head is slightly cocked to one side, nice details and the colours are excellent too.

Great flight catch Michael with perfect timing and focus.
I like it a lot: composition, POV, DOF, focus, sharpness, color, lighting, background, framing.
I like it: notes.
I don't like it: the lack of the values of the image.
Without knowing the speed used to evaluate the existent illumination, why did you used flash in this case?.
Good job, thank you for posting.
A cordial greeting from Buenos Aires... Ricardo
