Hello Tom
Very nice composition,
Beautiful colors
little failure on focusing.


Nice try! Sorry, PS work on the background is not great and your overall focus is off. With hummingbirds I recommend using a tripod and wait for the bird to enter a pre focused area, even then chances of capturing a great shot are limited. They are fast! By the time you see a "good" pose through the view finder,release the shutter and the camera actually takes the image they have departed! Keep trying.

Ho Tom.
The hummingbird is pretty and in a great pose.
But I really like the way the flower came out.
The translucence and colors of the petals are just gorgeous.
A great composition.
TFS. : )
