Nice, it's so hard to catch these little guys on a flower. There one minute gone the next.

03/14/2009 11:02:31 AM
almost a perfect shot wing being a bit blurred was a pity

Great action shot in a colourful environment.

Beautifully captured.

Nice shot and frozen motion. Composition works but is rather bland, perhaps a tighter crop could benefit this.

I've never seen a hummingbird drink from a daylily before. I'm going to have too keep a closer eye on the daylilies this year ;-)

Great capture.
03/12/2009 04:15:25 AM
good capture, though the head of the bird is a bit dark and the OOF flower front left is kinda distracting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 01:39:07 AM
It's amazing to me to think about how fast the shutter speed must be to get a decently clear shot of the flapping wings. Nice capture.
03/11/2009 11:07:16 PM
wow! great capture! what settings did you use?
03/11/2009 09:13:54 PM

Good capture
03/11/2009 08:18:13 PM
The colors here are so subtle, the subject so arresting ... it makes me want to linger. It belies the dramatic battle between lift and gravity.

I love hummingbirds. I just bought a feeder yesterday to. Wish I had the flowers here tho. haha. Nice!
03/11/2009 08:10:45 AM
terrific - the bird's face would have to be pin sharp for this to be top drawer - not easy to achieve, I know
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:46:47 AM
wow, great hummingbird capture, I hope to get one myself some day, love the colors here too
