Very nice. Well composed. Good detail in the hummer. Nice flowers and background. No nits from me.

Beautiful capture, Allen. I agree with Allen Brooks’ comments. Love everything about this shot. You put quite a bit of effort making the shot, but well worth it to come away with this.:+1::+1:

Excellent capture of this hummer, Allen. Techs and pose look perfect.

Nice, Allen. The flash work is very good and I like the composition.

Hi Allen,

Looks good–post processing spot on. It is amazing how quick these hummers catch on to the sugared flowers. Pose and BG look good to me as well. Awesome…Jim
