Nice color and exposure. It does seem a little soft. I would cut off part of the top to decenter the position of the HB.

Nice catch of the action, Skip, but the focus seems to be off a bit on both the hummingbird and most of the flower head. I love the wing position you caught.

Cool pose and just enough shutter speed to freeze the wings. The head is a little soft.
