Beautiful detail and nice eye contact, David. The angle looks a bit steep, but it shows off the coloration of the hummer very well.

Hi David, I like this. fine detail in the plumage and the colors on the bird pop nicely. A beautiful subject. An interesting perch too. With the shooting angle I get the impression he is presiding over his territory. Nice frame.

Good background to showcase this beauty, David. Great look at the colors.

Very nice. It’s all the great detail and colors that complement the bird. The perch…anything would look great on that perch.
Thanks for Post

Beautiful bird, and a beautiful shot, David. I like the slight turn of the head. Colors are beautiful, and great detail.
