Allens Hummingbird (26)

The courtship flight of the male Allen's Hummingbird is a frantic back and forth flight arc of about 25 feet similar to the motion of a swinging pendulum, followed by a high-speed dive from about 100 feet.

The male is also highly aggressive and territorial. Hot-tempered despite its diminutive stature, a male Allen's Hummingbird will chase any other males from its territory, as well as any other hummingbird species, and they have even been known to attack and rout predatory birds several times larger than themselves such as kestrels and hawks.

This lil one darted away right after this capture

Hello Branda,
I selectively de-noised the background (digital noise is similar to the graininess that one got with fast, high ISO, films), decreased brightness and sharpened only a little. Best wishes.

Added a bit shadows, so the colours are brighter.
Sharpened the bird - 100
Noise reduction in the background - 4

Hope you like it.
