Not my best shot of Ruby-throated hummers but a one in a million capture, at least for me.

Awesome shot!!!! I have my feeder set up, but I never have the camera handy and they don't visit that often. This is one for the books. Great work. I'd print a 24x30 if this was my shot.

Thanks. Sadly I don't think this one would hold up to a 24x30 print. I'm going to try an 8x10 first and go from there.
