Gorgeous detail and color and a lovely little head turn, Kurt. I do wish that darn perch didn’t come toward you, but I sure wouldn’t try to reposition myself before snapping the shutter. I’m eagerly awaiting some of the flight shots.

Extraordinary detail and the colors shine. Nice clean background.

Beautiful portrait Kurt with stunning colors and detail. Pleasing background too. All looks great to me. Well done!

Wonderful color and detail, with perfect DOF and a lovely BG!

Hi Kurt
This Hummingbird photograph has amazing color and feather detail.

Thought I recognized that bird Kurt. Beautiful details and color on this guy. One of my all time favorite spots to just sit and watch the hummers play.
