Incredible capture dear Wally.
I can have only an idea about how difficult is to get this kind of image.
Congrats and see you in TN.

This is absolutely phenomenal! It's been a while since i've seen bird (or actually any animal) shots of this quality here on TN.
The timing here, the sharpness and depth of field, the general and fill-in lighting...all are simply perfect!
...And that pose of the male - with his "blue beard" out like that...wow!!! I'm actually speechless!
Definitely a favorite. My sincere compliments and i truly hope you enroll this in a competition to get what it's worth :)
BRAVO and thanks for sharing

what a beautiful and charming photo this one is.The sharpness of focus and the clear colour makes this a tour-de-force of a photo and well worth waiting four years to achieve.The birds look very nice against the background you caught them in,with the pleasant tones and hues of blue giving a very fine contrast to those little birds.I can see just what the female is attracted too and that is the male's gorget which is so much like a flower,how could she not notice!A superb and very fine photo and thank you for sharing two very fine and lovely little birds with us all-outstanding.

I love hummingbird confrontation photos, and this is the best one that I can imagine!
The "beetlejuice" display of the calliope is very rare to catch on film.
I live in Atlanta, GA, and am considering a trip to the NW US just to try to get an image like this!
Great image, very dramatic.
