    Nice image. Both the flower and hummer could stand alone and still have a fine shot. Well done.

    An incredibly beautiful image. How does one split meter? Does that mean that you exposed for the bird and the flower separately?

    Thank you.

    Bright flowers. Water droplets. Wings in motion. Clean background. Appealing composition including the use of a diagonal. What's not to like?

    Thanks dan, I waited in the rain for 2 hours to get this shot. I took about 50 shots in all, to get this one keeper. The trick was a syringe full of hummingbird food injected into the same flower. She came back 4 different times to the same flower.(tripod set up and focus locked before she showed up)

    Just printed it at 13 x 19 .....................what an awesome print. Couldn't be happier.

    Thank you christina, don't know why it does that..........matrix metering. (slightly backlit, the reason for + 1 1/3. I also had to brighten the hummingbird in post , a little bit)

    just to add my compliments. I need something to effectively cheer me up after the day I've had.

    Seeing quality of this standard just gives such a lift. Outstanding photography.

    This is my favorite of all your hummingbird shots that I've seen, Steve. Very well done indeed. Everything came together perfectly. Patience really does pay off!

    Thank you arlen, and yes it does. I kind of cheated a little bit and spiked the flower, so it was patience and ingenuity.

    Very very nice. Working on some Hummer shots myself. I just don't have the patience you do
    Maybe you could write a tutorial of your methods...would be appreciated by all of us who are not so talented in this difficult area of photography. Hummingbirds are a totally different skill that takes time to perfect.
