Hi Jane,
Nice to see again one of cute Hummingbirds of yours. It is very beautiful and pretty as like its name. Your capture great with colors, lighting, composition and focus. Informative notes very good. Thanks for sharing, best wishes

Before say around 1995 I had never seen a hummingbird perched...I finally saw one in Mendocino...on a bush only a few feet from me....then no more...now I see them all the time on TN...very nice image Jane...

very beautiful shot of Anna's Hummingbird, very fine POV

with the bird's pose it is why it goes on my favorite theme,

Another beauty Jane,
Seems like all our hummingbirds must be down visiting you at this time of the year, we haven't seen any for about a week now. It's staring to get colder in the evenings so you know what's just around the corner.
Love to see them perched like this one, your image shows much detail and very good coloration!!

Hi Jane,
I have been asked if hummingbirds have legs, well this beautiful image proves they do, thanks for sharing.

Hi Jane.

I would love to see one of these in real life, must be stunning to watch it as it hovers whilst getting the nectar from flowers, even more amazing to see one sitting still, I always have the impression they never stop flying, lovely colours, excellent detail, and a perfect backdrop with that blue sky, really nice work, all the best,

Cheers Rick :)

Hello Jane,

Last year, an Anna's Hummingbird was seen and photographied here in Quebec which is very very unusual!

Nice picture took with your PowerShot. The bird is well in focus and perfectly exposed.

The only thing is that I would have removed the little vegetation at the bottom with Photoshop.

Nice job and TFS!


Hi Jane,
This is a very nice capture and composition. They are so tiny and fast moving that it is very difficult to photograph them! You beneficiated from a little moment of rest to take this beautiful picture, well done!

Hi Jane,
Fine shot of "Lady Anna" here.I have not seen these birds in real, so it is a pleasure to look at their wonderful shots shared by friends like you.The bright blue sky of Arizona makes a great Bg as always.And the bird looks well highlighted with good details in the wonderful natural light.
very well done.
TFs & Cheers
