Since I entered a very similar picture in the "bird" challenge, I wanted to enter something else.

This was the pic that was entered: ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/32345/120/640798.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/32345/120/640798.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

But I got scared that it would not score very high in a free study, so I chickened out and decided to go for a "almost sure" 6+ picture.

Alain, I did the same thing. I had a portrait entered in the FS, then backed it out and entered a second shot of the same hummingbird. I a lot of ways, I like this one better than your other eagle. Both are great shots, and I like being able to see into the mouth of the other one, but the composition and exposure control on this one are better.

Both excellent, though.

Awesome capture. One of the best of the birds entries in the free study I have seen so far.
