[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hummingbird sleeping in its nest. Had to be sleeping, otherwise the flash would have scared it off. Don't know what type; the other times I tried to photograph it to get the body, it would zoom off.

Great capture, Katherine. Very sharp details, perfect light, excellent composition. Very well done. I don't think it is a hummingbird, though. Can't see enough of the bird for an ID. TFS and a warm welcome to TN. : )

This is a lovely capture, Katherine.
The eye contact and details are exceptional. Your composition is original and rare.
Thank you for sharing it with us.

Welcome to TN!

Hi Katherine. What a cutey all snug in the nest. Lovely shot with great composition, exposure and detail. The only strong colour is the bird and that makes it centre focus. Beautiful, love the catchlight in the eye. Welcome to TN :)

Great shot.. and excellent details. I love the nest and the colours of the neck of the bird. Good work!

Not a hummer, a Sunbird - female Nectarinia jugularis
