A very cool capture. Having seen ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' william88's hummer captures, DPCers expectations have gone up for these kind of shots I think. I would've liked a faster shutter to freeze the wings, and less noise in the background, and a bit more light on the underside of the hummer. But, I know how hard it is to capture hummers in flight, so, well done...

Just enough blur to make this work, nice and sharp with good colour and exposure.

I'll bet you are just waiting for some smartbutt to comment about the motion blur on the wings and say something about shutter speed. What DOES it take to stop the wings of one of these?
