Hello Claude,

Nice freakin' macro man! I didn't think they made a lens fast enough to get that close and make this image capture. Excellent job. Did you have him in a jar or what? :)

Wow! Stunning capture! How did you do it???

Salut Claude

Quel oiseau ! Il manque juste un elfe que j'aurais bien vu posé sur la feuille.
Un parfait pov, le focus est intelligemment pensé.
C'est magique.

Bonne journée

Bonjour Claude
C'est un peu dommage qu'il ne soit pas entier. mais c'est vraiment pour faire la fine bouche car cela reste une superbe capture. Moi qui n'ai jamais réussi a faire une photo correcte d'oiseau, même au repos, je suis épaté par la qualité de ce petit colibri(?) en pleine action. Et la palette de couleur est de plus sublime. Du beau travail.


Hi my friend. Haven't seen you for a while. This is extraordinary shot and it really is a beauty!

Have a nice day Claude!

Wow.. this is gorgeous Claude.
Quite something different than what we are used to seeing from you.
A real stunning bird... or is it a humming bird??? ;-)

Love the greens here, the total of the picture has a wonderful atmosphere.


you have been busy!
fine composition, excellent dof and good details , well done on this one too,

Ciao Claude,

Beautiful look for my eyes!
Beautiful in color, the softness
and the presentation!
This is a cute capture!
The composition has an attractive simplicity,
your Bg blurred is a beautiful background for the bird...
Good colors and details of plumage!
