Great capture of this hummingbird. Great use of the dof with nice details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
This is a nice capture of the male Ruby-throated Hummingbird. It's wonderful when they flash their red gorget this way. I think it's worth mentioning that the best way to freeze their wing action is by using flash, as you did here. It also helps that the wings were at the end of travel. Normally at a 1/250 shutter one would expect much wing blur.

Boa noite Michel
Good catch...I like the wind effect, the red color and the good bg blur.

Nice capture Michel - a little 'noisy' but the face on angle is great as is the shallow yet controlled DOF.
Nice bright slash of red on the bird's throat.

A lovely capture from a hummingbird with well kept clarity and focus, however, more light could have enhanced the overall appeal of the scene, dear Michel!
The sharpness and POV are well done and colors are quite nice too.
Good details with well kept DOF.
Thanks and regards,

Another attempt on this naughty hummingbird. This time much better than the previous, although not to a certain standard. I know it's a difficult task to capture this bird. I like in the inflight position of the bird proceeding to its feeding place.
A little short of contrast, but a very courageous attempt!
My best regards,

La capture du colibri en vol est un atout à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du colibrui en vol. La lumière du flash rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
