I have posted a lot of hummingbird photos on various sites. This is one that i am very proud of. I am hoping that the fact that i used a hummingbird feeder to coax them, would not hurt this photo being displayed on treknature. I love the pose on this bird.

Exceptional detail with razor sharp focus. Outstanding exposure and beautiful colors. You must have had fast shutter speed to freeze action so well. (would be nice to see at least aperture and shutter settings). Don't know if you had more room on right, but I would leave just a little space. It is cropped very tight.

Great shot Mike, and to me the feeder does not detract, the bird is not caged and is acting on his own. The detail is really super, nice capture.


Hi Michael
Great picture, the feeder is not a problem, but there is a strange background, although completely out of focus it looks rather artificial.

A great pose, Michael, with the wings hunched forward.
The details are amazing and presented in very good light.
TFS. : )

brilliant post, the only thing i would do to iomprove it is to crop the top edge away a bit to remove that light section of the otherwise perfect background. Well done and im jealous...... Try to post the EXIF as that is interesting reading as well.

Cool shot of this little bird.


Hey you could always photoshop in a honeysuckle or something instead! Perfect timing and great clarity on this hummingbird Micheal!
