:hmm: let's see -

another amazing image from this artist :nod:

the composition of the image is splendid (even to the triangle structure created by the color in the lone flower to the beak and back feathers of the bird :clap: which help the our eyes travel through her wonderfully structured photograph :clap:

she displays the natural world this little bird lives in by giving the bird's environment almost as much priority as the humming bird itself - and lets us see just how little these guys are :clap:

her signature does not distract from the image as so many watermark/sigs do and the clarity and attitude of the subject is stunning - very typical of these little guys - grumpy :D

since i don't believe in perfection i left one star off the vision rating system - but honestly - if there were such a thing as a perfect image i think this one would qualify - hands down :clap: well done indeed :clap:

but then - i'm kind of partial to hummingbirds :nod:

I saw them everywhere, but the weather was so crappy that this is the best shot I could get. I bet yours is super sharp!

How do you get such detailed photos of birds? I can never get them.

I'd actually say that this one is not as detailed as it could be (lighting was poor). However, a steady hand and good sharp lens helps.
