That's really nice. I like that you didn't lighten the exposure.

That's a great close-up. Crystal clarity on the bird and a nice bokeh.

Thank you, Jack, appreciated.

Beautiful and detailed. What type? I want to say Rufous but I have my doubts.

Had to google this one. Rufous Hummingbird? What a beaut!

Where are you people finding locations for these birds. All I see in my area (NYC) are American Robbins, Blue Jays and Cardinals.

Thank you both. Yes, I believe Rufous.
I go to botanic gardens often and eventually learn which plants/flowers attract these hummingbirds. Then I frequently visit the same area, looking for them. Some days I come back empty-handed, and on other days I get great shots. This morning was a successful trip :-)

I think I'll go back to my day-job after seeing the previous shots of the Northern Gannets.:-(
