[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of my very early shots taken in 2005 while trying to take some decent shots from my new camera and I was trying to shoot the flowers and this liitle bird came to drink the flower nectar. I took a few shots before the bird finished its feeding.

Th image has been cropped , resized and framed for final presentation.

I am not too sure about the id of this species of the bird. I though it was a species similar to humming bird but wasnt sure about it.

Kindly guide about the species of this cute little bird.

Hola Pankaj.
Unos detalles excelentes, buenos tonos y agradable iluminación.
Buen encuadre y acertada exposición así como tu nota.
Un saludo, JL.

Hi Pankaj,
A beautiful capture of the hummingbird. Nice timing and well framed. Thanks a lot for sharing.

As I browsed your gallery, I noticed all your photos were amazingly vivid - gorgeous colors. This one is no exception - - -and the subject is great - what a beautiful and almost amusing pose.

Hi Pankaj

A lovely shot. The pose is very good as it tells the viewer about the bird's habits. I also really like the colours.


You do have an eye for colors, as some have said. I once saw an East Indian drawing paintings as fast as dollars would come out of pockets in downtown New York City...and the paintings were beautiful with colors..and so well done, so fast. Perhaps there is an ethnic genealogy which would explain the almost cultural appreciation you have for color......

Hi Pankaj,
Nice capture of this fellow. I liked the composition and the details. TFS

For an early practise shot it's pretty good Pankaj,

beautiful clours through out.
Very good point of view.
For me here in rainy Scotland, this has a very exotic feel.

Hello Pankaj

A gem from your archives.The composition is wonderful.I really like the colour and lighting.It is a beautiful capture of this bird.TFS


This possibly couldn't be Hummingbird, Pankaj, thought we have quite a few small sized birds in India.
As I said earlier, you did not have to find your love for nature through TN. It was already there!
This is a lovely capture in which both the bird and the Morning Glory flowers combine into a lovely and colourful compostion.
Well done and TFS.

Hi Pankaj.
Wonderful colours and captured lovely perched on the throat of the flower. Would have been nice if it was slightly more side-on so we could see him feeding but this is well done.

Hi again Pankaj!
Nice to meet you again, though I see I've missed a lot of your last pictures!
This one is a marvellous outstanding shot! I love the color of those beautiful flowers and the birdie picking on them. Fantastic POV, DOF and composition.
A marvellous job!
Congratulations and TFS

Hello Pankaj,
nice shot of this hummingbird. Looks like the trumpet vine does attract those birds quite well, planted one and can't wait until its blooming so far I am waiting 2 years.. hahah.
Lovely composition, full of color and lovely detail.

Hello Pankaj,
There is something very touching in this picture. May be the pose of the little bird standing on the fragile flower, but not harming it. Very natural shot.
Best regards
