Excellent...I really like the 1st one....The 2nd one is kind of funny...did the flower support it's weight or did it fold?

The petal sagged onto the leaf below. The hummer never fully perched.

They are both terrific captures, I like the second one best. The wing spread and the detail to the wings is great.

Did you use a flash to stop the wings? I was told that was the only way to stop the movement for the photo...look forward to hearing if you did.

What lens?


Canon 70D & a few Canon lenses

Wow, you don't see the view in #2 very often. Nice catch.

Both sharp and excellent. We have the same plant and the hummers love it.

No flash. The hummer was semi perched so it's wing speed was slower than normal. Lens is a 70-300L.
