You are getting good, got them trained to wave now.
Another excellent moment, suspended in mid-air with not a thing around him. Again the perfect DOF really makes him stand out.
Colour and detail good, catch light in the eye.

Good Eye! Good Eye! Good Eye!
Actually I believe that is baseball talk, but I have morphed it over to TN-Speak.
I like hummingbirds and I like this picture of one waving. Shows motion, nice OOF background. Muted tones....

Fantastic shot again. Amazing how you have managed to upload a full series of hummingbirds in different moods and activities. Wonderful moment freezed with the awesome motion-blur on its wings. Excellent POV and a superb neutral BG. And yes....the title is absolutely pertinent. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

I have never ever seen a humming bird, at least not in the flesh.
I can't help but think these must be very hard to capture.
You'ce done well here Angy, great OOF background and nice motion blur portraying the speed and movement.

I think they are posing for you now...Great capture...This must be the winner of the battle...Very well done...TFS
I dont' know your belief, but we have a person who is famous to talk to animals, he was St Francesco of Assisi. I think that to love animals is the right way to have communications with them. I had ever lived with every kind of pets, and I have no surprise when I know of same experience or communication. To talk is not the only communication, and I have normal conversation with my pets. Of course I charge me to translate in some way their conversation, but to not speak English or Italian or other language is not a reason to consider them stupid. I met sometimes an animal that astonished me with his cleverness, and I accepted him/her, as a demo of the power of the Nature.
Your mother maybe is one of the happy people that has the fortune to communicate easily with them.
I think we are all in the hands of Someone superior to us.
Have a good day,

I'm getting jealous of your hummingbirds. Two feeders up and all I get are finches! This is lovely - nice and sharp details. I love the white tips of the wings. Even shows up well against the dark background.

Hola Angelina. Hermosa foto de este "colibri" Me agrada su habitual pose en pleno vuelo. Agradables colores naturales y un muy bonito fondo. Saludos Luis52.

Angelina, :-) this is a FINE capture. Could have been much more sharp if you had used a higher shutter speed. But that IF the light conditions permitted it. Good job.
The story about the humming bird was good, even to an agnostic like me :-). Faith never harms anyone, acts like the very foundation of our lives.
Warm regards, Kiran.

selam angy; nice macro shot of this lovely bird,very good details presented,nice BG and POV well captured with splendid colours TFS
A nice capture of this dirigent,well frozen with good colors and sharpness,tfs
Nice story and nice capture of the hummingbird. The blurred green background gives it somewhat of a mystical feeling. Excellent freeze action. Nice exposure.
To get exceptional sharpness I would try going to ISO 400, shutter priority and set shutter speed at least 1/1250 and faster if possible. The photo may be a little underexposed, but you can lighten it up in the edit phase.

A nice shot on this female Ruby Throated Hummingbird. I agree with Ken that a faster shutter speed will give you sharper images of these little beauties. I have my feeders out, but they are very scarce here tight now. Nice shot!

Love your notes.
ANOTHER GREAT ONE.
You must have a "private" factory of these in Texas.
Just imagine Angelina ... if you could move your arms 50-80 times per SECOND ... you'd swim from Texas to Europe faster than a jet.
Your "forever" grateful friend in Canada,
You know ????

These birds have always fascinated me, unfortunately we don't see them in this part of the world. I imagine they are a difficult specimen to photograph. Nice capture good colour and DOF. I am yet to see someone take a shot where they have frozen the detail of this birds wing when it is in flight, 80 beats per second thats fast! Thanks for the story and details, another great image to your collection.
