So graceful and agile, so small, yet full of strength.

Hi Eleu,
Perfect timing to capture this Hummingbird in flight.
I like the movement effect of its wings.
A very sharp image of this orange plant. Moreover a glorious bokeh BG.

Great! The flower is very attractive, but I like this little bird in flight very much, compliments

Hi Eleu
nice scene. amazing colors. fine shallow DOF for enhancing the scene on bokeh BG.

Hi, Eleu. Great timing for this shot. It is a male Rufus humming bird. The flowers and the bird in motion is beautifully composed and presented. These are difficult photos and they require a lot of patience. Cheers.

Hi Eleu,
Fantastic action image of this little humming bird, and yes it is very invasive plant.

Hi Eleu...nice shot. Excellent sharpness of the foreground with a nice soft background. Well done.


Hello Eleu, a beautiful light on the brightly coloured flower and the little bird.
If it weren't for the blurred wings, we might imagine that the hummingbird was suspended by the flower!
Lovely bokeh too.
Tfs, regards Jean.
