I think this can be difficult to make, such a photo has to be shot fast. It would be better to show the wings of the hummingbird completely freezed, as to see it stpped in mid-air. Very nice composition with the bird towards one side and good colours.

A very good capture with lovely colours and nice DoF.
Good details of the bird also.
Even at 1/1000 sec the wings are a blur,they really move!
Very good work and welcome to TN.

Welcome to TN. The details of the head and flower are crisp. It is a very nice try. Considering the speed they flap those wings, the focus shouldn't bother you a lot. Great work.

Welcome Lesley to your spiritual photographic home. And what a lovely calling card to slip onto the table! Is it possible to capture the wings of a Hummer completely still while it is feeding, I wonder? They do move fastest of all birds, I believe.
But what lovely composition, colour and clarity.
I know you have many more good pictures to show and you are still improving I hope you'll enjoy sharing your pictures here.
How about creating a Hummers Theme?

Excellent capture with nice colours and good DOF ! Well done !
Lesley, Great shot of this hummingbird. The movement in the wings is very nice. Sharpness and DOF is well chosen. The blurred background makes the bird and the flower standout.
I personally would crop away part of the flower to accentuate focus on the hummingbird. I did a workshop on that. Please let me know what you think.

Amazing capture Lesley - just such one we all dream about to take. Very sharp and detailed with great colours. The blurred wing tips really shows how fast they move the wings - even at 1/1000 they are blurred but it adds some movement to the picture. The clever use of limited dof really sets the bird off in a nice way. Great job.

Lesley, believe me: I do know these fantastic creatures are difficul to be caught. Even though, I'm fascinated about them.
The colors are so vivid here. Excellent POV.
