excelent capture this photo;-)) very nice;-)

Very nice results! Nice colours and detail. The motion blur of the wings actually works well for this subject. I would have framed the bird a bit closer to the left, but this works as well.

Hi Leisa,
Great catch with good timing, very nice colours, excellent details, beautiful bokeh.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Lisa,
an excellent shot! Good detail in the body with the nice wing blur. Colors look excellent. Very nice work here.

Hello Leisa, Excllent photo, Perfect timming, Great colors, Bg, POV, DOF, perfect Job, TFS Kyle

avec juste un million de pixel de plus que moi vous avec reussie une superbe photo d'oiseau en vol,chose que je peine a faire.

You get only a blur of the wings of this bird despite high shutter speed, Leisa.
A great snapshot with a good perspective, sharpness and colors.

Hello Leisa,

Wonderful colors and sharp.
Very good composition.

Hi Leisa! Well, here it is, the photo I've always dreamed of taking, and you've done it! Spectacular in every way--10 out of 10! Will spur me on to try to get something approaching this. Exquisite!!! Linda


Great timing. Like the sharp body with the soft wings. Excellent POV and DOV. I'm still waiting to make my first picture of a hummingbird.

Good job with this Leisa,
Nice detail, color, POV, and exposed well.
Looks just like my black-chinned female hummer here in Texas..
Well done.

Very nice composition, nice colors and contrast. Great POV. I love the wing blur. The only thing I can critique on this image is there is a slight halo around the hummer, usually from over sharpening in processing.

You got it! Hot stuff!

Hello Leisa,

One of the best hummingbird picture I've ever seen. Colors are great. Congrats.
