Hi Erika,
nice picture you shot there.
I like the colors very much. The hummingbird itself is quite sharp.

Hi Erika,

The crop is a bit tight but I like the shot you made. very sharp for an inflight shot and wonderful green fluorescent colors. TFS.

hello erika,
a beautiful picture...its very sharp and all details are perfect..
I think you have made a tight cropping(tightly composed).You could have left some space around the bird.
A great inflight shot.

Hi Erika,
Very nice capture. Good composition and background color.

Hi Erika,
this is a great in-flight shot, maybe a bit tight cropped
but nevertheless it's great.
You manged to frozen the bird in a very nice way, the head and body are pin sharp and the wings in nice motion blur.
The simple colours are just beautiful and the bird standout nicely from the BG.
Very well done,

Hello Erika
I am fascinated by inflight shots of small birds..they are so hard to capture and freeze thier movement.(I have been experimenting for a while and posted a few)..but you have done superbly here..I love the wings forward as they reach to capture air...the colours are perfect..the only niggle would be the crop is a bit tight..But as I know the bird may have been at the edge of the frame and you cropped accordingly to centre..

Hello Erika,
Fantastic capture, superb sharpness and details, beautiful vibrant colors and lovely light, good composition and pov, even though i also agree the crop is a bit too tight, great action shot, well done, this little guy really shines!

Great shot of the hummingbird. Beautiful in flight capture with wonderful color and detail. It reminds me of the female Ruby Throated ones we have here in Ohio.

Hi Erika,
Nice in-flight capture of this hummingbird. Good colors, details, light and background. TFS
Best wishes,
