[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Female Calliope Hummingbird reacting to the noise of the camera and flash. She became accustomed to it after a very few shots, even stopped to rest on one of the flash units as I continued taking images of the other hummingbirds that were arriving that evening.

2¾-3¼"- The smallest of the North American Hummingbirds. Male metallic green above, has a white gorget with purple violet rays which can be raised to give a whiskered effect. Female green above, white below with dark streaks on throat, buffy flanks and white tipped tail corners. Resembles the female Rufous, but smaller and paler flanks.

Hello Walter,
That's incredibly clever to capture a Hummer so close and so well in flight! Very sharp and I love the shape of it against the blue background.
Thanks, Ulla

Nice in flight shot Walter, great sharpness and colors. It hard to take this little one, but get'it very well. Well done

Hermoso salto-vuelo de baile. Parece como si el colibrí supiera que lo estás inmortalizando y muestra su mejor movimiento.
Precioso en todos sus detalles Walter.
Saludos desde Gran Canaria.

Astonishing freezing of such a fast motion. The colours are perfect. Thanks for sharing this wonder!

Hi Walter,
Perfect captured moment. Very nice bright colours, perfect background. Sharpness and details OK.
Normally this is very difficult but you are succeeding very well to capture this in flight pose! Compliments Walter.
Regards, Ruud.

Excellent shot. Nice presentation. TFS.

Walter,
Another exceptional hummingbird shot, and what a great atypical pose. I love your ability to freeze the action. The flash is not too severe and really works well. Great work.
