This was a difficult shot. I had to shoot through a window and the lighting wasn't very good so this was the best I could get under the circumstances.

Nice capture, great background too. Just a little bit noisy in the dark areas of the bird.

another awesome on good timing or you do it all the time, can see this in a gallery along with the other great bird shots.

Nice job freezing the wings. It looks like it came at the price of noise caused by the high ISO or increasing the brightness in post processing, though.

Great job freezing the motion! I find the noise in the dark areas on the hummer to be somewhat distracting but overall well executed! - 7
