Bruce, beautiful Humming Bird with a perfect non distracting, and contrasting background. Very sharp, and I like very much the curved and narrow perch. I was looking over the different varieties (more than 25) but could not identify this one. It is very sharp, and the catchlight adds interest to it   Posted: 05/04/2022 20:59:52

Isaac, thanks for your comments, not sure about the name either. I had a great time in Fla. . Bruce   Posted: 05/20/2022 14:15:10

Bruce, great portrait image. The image is sharp, background blurred, colors vibrant, and the catch light adds life! The artistic form of the perch adds to the birds beauty.   Posted: 05/11/2022 07:53:49

Bruce, What a lovely image! The colors of the bird go well with the background. The details of its feathers and the lovely composition make this a truly effective shot. Nicely done!   Posted: 05/11/2022 08:15:32

I love hummingbirds. And would love a trip to Costa Rica or Ecuador. This is a nice image with sharp detail and good bokeh. And as everyone has mentioned the branch perch adds just the right touch. Nothing much to say about improving it.   Posted: 05/11/2022 12:12:52

Truly beautiful Bruce! So sharp, clear with a perfect background. But its the unusual shaped branch which makes in 'special'.   Posted: 05/12/2022 11:57:52

Bruce, everyone has pointed out the strong points of this image. I am most struck by the tiny curved perch which adds an artistic touch to your wonderful image.   Posted: 05/12/2022 12:13:56
