[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this a few minutes ago - I was in the garden pulling up weeds - first sunny weekend I can remember this year! - and suddenly this lady, a female ruby throated humming bird appeared and seemed quite comfortable with me nearby. I rushed in, grabbed my new Olympus which has an electronic shutter so does not disturb the birds, and got this sunny shot, even with a very tight crop not material noise in the picture at ISO 400

Hello Alan,
Nice image of a little bird.

Hello Alan,
Perfect background for such profile shot. Well captured this Hummingbird. Nice details and natural colors.
Thanks and regards,

Thanks for your interest on my style of photography 😊. I use that style while see background or sky looks dull or not attractive at all.
