Nectar for Breakfast
Hi My beloved Big Sister Jane,
An expertly taken shot of a hummingbird in-flight with nice details and composition. Many thanks for sharing this fine image. Take care!
An excellent action shot of a female Annas(?) Hummingbird taking nectar in a lovely composition against the blue sky. The flowers are a fine ingredient in this pleasing composition.
TFS this beauty,
BTW I don't know if you noticed, but ID'd your Sulphur butterfly.

Surely you have a good eye for nature Jane, you somehow found that tiny hummingbird among all those leaves and flowers and captured a fine shot while it was feeding. Good job my friend, TFS this nice piece of nature.

I feel semi qualified now to judge inflights whilst being objective on the equipment used on the capture.
And I can tell you this is a blinder!!..The S5 is a great camera but it certainly isnt designed to be used for this type of shot especially when you take into account the use of a convertor.
This far outweighs technically any SLR capture.
As for a crit on the photo....Theres no point in wasting words..Its a favourite.
All the Best

You really give a feeling of stretch here Jane, not only in the bird but in your neck as trying to get the angle so good...and hold the camera steady as well...It is another of your new hot shot images...I envy you....I would love to spend this winter in AZ...however G-d tells me I must do something here first...that is the way...

I like very much Hummingbirds. They are really very beatiful with colorful and shiny plumages and cute bodies. Your capture also wonderful. You managed to capture it among dense vegetation. Great focus and composition. light and colors superb. Thanks for sharing, best wishes

Hello Jane. The image of this small bird is well captured sucking the nectar. Nice framing with very good focus on the subject. I like the sky in the background at the plant in the composition. Pleasing image and well done. Regards. Jusni

I can imagine how difficult it is to take a picture like this one, Jane.
However, you have proved yourself upto the task through this wonderful image of a Hummingbird sipping nectar from a flower.
The image is very impressive as a whole, but I specially like the blurred wings that suggest very high rate of movement.
Well done and TFS.

All the best Rick :)

The wings in movement and the body are still. Great exposure time.
I hope you can'read it.
I like the pose of this little bird.
Such a bird we don't have here.
Brautiful colours too.

I love seeing these when they are in a natural surrounding instead of the feeders.
Fantastic stop and position.
Glad you shared it.

Another very fine capture of a little Hummingbird seeking nectar from a beautiful shrub. Do you have any clue of what it is? I love the trumpet-like flowers as does the Hummer!! Good sharpness and lovely colours.
TFS and cheers, Ulla
