Ah, this is a good effort Janice. These creatures are not easy to capture. The picture suffers a little from overexposure though and because of motionblur. I think you could have solved both problems by using a faster shutterspeed. What speed did you use?

Seem to be a bright sunny day. This bird is so happy, came out early for sweet nectar. As the picture is a bit harsh on light, amateur like me would reason that faster shutterspeed could be used. Anyway this is a well seen and adorable picture.

Well seen and captured. Not an easy shot with the branches in the way and the strong light. I won't repeat what has already been said but I would say the detail is pretty good and the colours are excellent. Nicely framed against a dark background accentuates the colours. I admire people who can capture these birds on film too. A good shot.
I agree that there is some OE to this, but having tried these I know how very difficult this is. The hummers have not come back here much this year. I have not even attempted a shot on one yet. Keeping trying. It took me quite a few to finally get a decent one.

Good capture of this hummer,They certainly are quicker than my reaction time.I agree there is some OE but the photo is nicely composed and has a good action to it.Looks like he is keeping his eye on you while sipping the nectar. TFS

Not bad. A hummingbird in the wild! I think the best way to improve the shot is spend a couple thousand on equipment and try this at a zoo for a more controlled environment. But given your technical constraints and shooting in the natural habit I think you did very well.
