Nice shot! Is that a Firecracker Plant? Loveley composition with the hummingbird and the flowers.

Hi Jim,

A good POV of the hummingbird and of the flowers, the photo has a good composition, sharpness and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.


Hello Jim
Very nice shot of this Hummingbird,
Perfect focusing,lighting and BG,Welldone.

Good Luck

Hi Jim,
All in all a very pleasing image..You have blue sky, a touch of cloud, and frame filling color..Who could ask for more?
Well done.

Wow what saturation. Some days with full sun are like that. And again it reminds me of old school Technicolor. Very nice. Will they be gone for the winter or is that where to go for the season? Nice and colorful Jim.

Hi Jim,
Very beautiful picture. Wonderful vivid colours. Details and DOF are excellent.
Thanks for sharing,

Wonderful capture, superb PoV, excellent composition
She looks like she's a fair way over your head here!
But I love that you've captured her with that long beak tucked into the heart of the flower

Buena composición. Cuanto me gustaría tener este ave pòr aquí ... La vi en mis visitas al Caribe y es encantadora.

Saludos Jim.

Hi Jim,
This picture has such vivid colors and is so clear. I like how the background is somewhat faded but not too much.
P.S. Here is a smiley face for you! I ran out of them & did not know why until Nick & Richard told me.
