Hi Jane,

Great shot and pov on this lovely tiny bird.
Are this bird singing?
Beautiful natural colours and I like the red point on his head.


Hi Jane,

Nice natural framing of the subject which is sharp and very interesting with the beak open. Nice blue sky for the background.

Hello Jane,
Wonderful photo in a fantastic natural frame. Very beautiful colours and pin-sharp. Excellent pose, POV and composition.

Hi my beloved Big Sister Jane,
A perfect and very beautiful composition of this cute Anna's hummingbird with an excellent depth of field and very beautiful lighting. A well timely capture too.
Many thanks for sharing this beauty.
All the best!


Another splendid capture of the hummingbird. Brillant colors, great detail, excellent composition... well done and TFS


Ciao Jane,
splendida cattura con ottimi POV e DOF, molto bella la composizione per la bella posa del colibrý nella cornice delle foglie, ottima definizione dei dettagli e dell'occhio, molto belli i colori.

Well, it must be difficult to keep those long beaks closed all the time Jane, joking aside this is a fantastic shot my friend, I wonder how can you see, let alone capture, this tiny, well camouflaged bird among all that vegetation! Comprehensive notes too...

hello Jane

excellent shot of this Hummingbird with fine POV and framing
and caught with her beak open like scissor, excellent timing
too shoot it in photo, excellent sharpness and details,
with beautiful Arizonian blue sky, TFS


Hello Jane, a perfect shot of this hummingbird while it was open its mouth. Lovely shot. TFS and regards,

Hello Jane,
When I come see you you will have to show me how to catch these little ones. Wonderful image and I think this is the first time I have seen one with its beak open.

Hello Jane,
Great shot of a female Anna's Hummingbird.
A nice framing by the branches, the pose with half-open beak, POV and lighting make this image attractive. Interesting to see that this female has what appears to be a red mite on her cheek.
Thanks for sharing this one: it's the first time I have seen a hummingbird with a parasite.

Sorry, I'm late with this one, sis!
Love the shot, for the colours and the lovely sharp capture of the subject!
As usual, an excellent and very apt title!
