The pink is too close to red, so that doesn't count! ;) But the purple one! Love it! Nicely focused on the eyes for such a low shutter speed, Bret, nice indeed!

Hey, I had purple flowers! Someone asked why there were blue and purple flowers in the pics. Thought I had messed up the color again 'til I remembered I had put 2 varieties in the same pot.:oops: But the nitty-gritty is I didn't have hummingbirds like these. Very well done, my friend, excellent as always.

Fantastic image.
Mine love every color (Totally non prejudice) but very territorial and almost one alpha male controls all three feeders kept on three side of home!
Love these hardworking birds that might be one of the cutest bird in the world.

Thanks very much Ian, that's a beautiful color. But pink does count, as in Pink Flamingo, lol, thanks Ian! (Low speed has yet to be posted!)

Oh, I don't think it matters much what colour they are, Bret, as they are all equally beautiful. I never tire of seeing Hummingbirds and yours are some of the best!

Well done Bret. I prefer the better eye contact of #1.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.
