Great capture! I do wish you had a touch more detail captured on the hummingbird instead of the flower, but still an incredible shot!

This is a great photo, you are fortunate to have witnessed this. I would like to give high marks, but the thing that is missing is the tongue. If the tongue was there, it would be an ace!

Beautiful shot, the wings are perfect... there's tension as it is right before the bird gets to tast the flower. I also love the backlighting, emphasizing the smooth sleekness of the bird and hairy texture of the plant!

Fine stop action. Hummers are always fun to get in action.
