[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hummingbirds are birds that comprise the family Trochilidae. They are among the smallest of birds, most species measuring in the 7.513 cm (35 in) range. Indeed, the smallest extant bird species is a hummingbird, the 5-cm Bee Hummingbird. They can hover in mid-air by rapidly flapping their wings 1280 times per second (depending on the species). They are known as hummingbirds because of the humming sound created by their beating wings, which sometimes sound like bees or other insects. To conserve energy while they sleep or when food is scarce, they have the ability to go into a hibernation-like state (torpor) where their metabolic rate is slowed to 1/15th of its normal rate. They are also the only group of birds with the ability to fly backwards. They can fly at speeds exceeding 15 m/s (54 km/h; 34 mph). Individuals from some species of hummingbirds weigh less than a penny. (From Wikipedia)

The beauty world of 3D and HD images
a lovely hummingbirds by it's element and also what a great details its a beautiful image merci and well done ELEU TABARES

Boa tarde Eleu,
I begin by the BG, which is lovely, and well diffused with good depth, and reward us with a flashy bokeh.
The first plane I'd rather applaud just because I like flowers, red color and hummingbirds.

Hello Eleu, this shot gives us a very good impression about the size of these dear little birds.
You have managed an excellent sharp focus on the flower and the bird.And the bokeh is good too.
The light on the flower illuminates all its' details so well.

Hi Eleu,
That's a great capture of the hummingbird in flight. Quite a nervous bird, very difficult to shoot! Perfect sharpness and an agreeable POV.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Bonjour Eleu
Beautiful capture of this hummingbird in flight trying to retrieve the nectar from this beautiful red flower..
Great focus,clarity,and beautiful details..


Good action shot, this Hummingbird is well captured in flight, interesting movement of the wings and I love that bokeh.
Vivid colors, a pleasure to watch.

Incredible to see this shot was taken towards the end of November. By that time we had been snowed in for almost 2 months (doesnt wait for winter here!)Excellent sharpness of the humming bird and lovely flowers. Good pov and dof.
