Attila the Hum
The rufous-tailed hummingbird is so aggressive that it has earned the nickname Attila the Hum. This warrior patrols a hotel garden in the San Carlos region of Costa Rica. I spent a good 90 minutes playing tag with him to get this shot. Lumix ZS5, about 24X.

Re: Attila the Hum
Jack - You will see that I have inserted your image into your post, rather than having it sitting as a small thumbnail attached to the post.
For directions on how to post your images so that they appear at a larger size embedded into your posts, please read - HELP THREAD: How can I post images here?
Because it's not the most colourful hummingbird that's out there, separating it from its background is always going to be a challenge. I think you've managed that quite well. You've nailed the focus and it is a nice, sharp image.
