This is what I call beautiful! Details is sharp, splendid sight not all of has the opportunity to see everyday. I enjoyed looking at this photo. I am no photographer but admire talent when I see it. This photo of the hummingbird proof to be one of those I admire. Deserves high marks. I like it a lot!

Hola Michel. Exelente tu bella foto. Me agradan sus finos colores y el fondo. Saludos Luis52.
Yes my friend, charming it is indeed. One thing that is not "misleading" is the quality of the arrest on pixel. Although this lovely little bird might have an identity crisis due to the ambiguous reference in its species name or even in its French common name, but that does not deter one iota of its beauty and the remarkable (no incredible) way you have captured it. Stunning stuff.
You have almost frozen that exceedingly fast moving wings and possibly that was through the good fortune of the bird holding on to the flower stem. The composition is excellent with the flower stem running through the left 1/3 vertical axis and the bird occupying some of the remaining space of the 2/3 to the right. The colours are soothing on the eye, the details are sharp and well defined, the brilliant exposure was perfectly managed, and the extraordinary desert BG is well removed and OOF thus highly complimentary to the subject.
Great work and TFS.

Awesome shot of this Hummingbird captured with sharp details and nice colours. A wonderful moment freezed, when it is sucking in. Set against the neutral BG it stands out well. The lighting and focus are perfect. Excellent POV and a superb composition. Kudos.

Impressive photo with superb colors and composition. Background is particularly unique in its color, and the 1/800-sec was perfect to capture the fast wing motion. Regards,

I am touched by your heart words of congratulations. I shall aspire to correspond to them.
Your next shot is simply superb but clear impressive subject and outstanding technique of execution. All is perfect: lighting (it is great), razor sharpness of the bird and plant details, perfect exposure parameters and so on. Bravo and thank for my next favorite shot.

Wonderful all round photo. A brilliant POV and bg colours.
Simply a great photo,
the delightfully smooth earthy colours and a strict composition make this image an eye catcher. Also the hummingbird and its constant motion are perfectly well captured here - good details caught but still enough motion blur to look perfectly natural.
Why it's called a fallax or trompeur, je ne sais pas. I guess "buffy" does describe it better.
With thanks, and my best regards,

A beautiful capture! :) :O I didn't know they could turn their heads like that! I love the wing detail with the light showing almost through it. :)
