hummingbirds are such wonderful birds, lucky you to
see and capture them! :-)
you´re right about the sharpness, not the best, 1/250 seems to
be not fast enough, but the pose is amazing, especially
the spread-out tailfeathers are great.
well seen & captured, thorsten.

Well I think the that sharpness in this image is not a big issue. In fact it conveys a sense of speed, which is associated with these little birds. The rest of the image qualities far outwiegh sharpness. Exposure is perfect, composition is strong and the BG is just amazing.
Walter - a little gem! well done, what is your technique for catching these shots?

For me this is an 'exotic' bird. Looking at your portfolio it is like they are flying everywhere:-).
Beautiful image again

Splendid shot of this very beautiful hummingbird!
Indeed a very unique POV...i think that's the part i like most of this picture! i especially like the very visible feathers of the tail - nicely spread at this moment :)
Also great sharpness and excellent lighting. Lovely colors and DOF, too.
Very well done!
Bravo, TFS and have a great weekend!

Beautiful colours. Very nice details and sharpness. A fantastic shot.
Nice action shot
I agree with you; this position is really nice :) Like I said before, I'm really amazed by the way you manage to capture those little creatures. I tried many time but I didn't not succed. Those details and colors are very nice; I'm just a little surprised by the noise seen in BG... Well done and thanks,
Hi the master of Hummingbird!! This one is a great shot too!! Always perfect timing and beautiful colors and great sharpness.. You have never grass in front of your lens!! Congratulations, Didier.
