I've had a hard time deciding on what to enter... I've probably made the wrong choice.

I'm guessing a 5.8 or so on this.

I like the color of the h bird, I wish the focus were more on the face instead of the stick, but these things are crazy to capture, nice job, 7.

Lookit' those wings beating! And his little feet poised to grab the branch. Nice capture. It might benefit from a little contrast and/or saturation boost to deepen the background color and make the bird stand out even more.

I love this. The wings beating so fastthat you can see multiples, and yet the head and body still. Well done.

Simple and elegant. Good lighting, and very low coloring which is nice in this photo. Its amazing you got so close to a hummingbird like this!

Nice attempt. The movement in the wings are fine. Wish the beak was sharper. 6
