Nice photo, caryl

I've only seen hummingbirds a few times in my life (as there aren't any where I am here in Australia, and I didn't see them in Europe where I lived either).

I appreciate the colours of the feathers and the bokeh in this photo.

Having spent a week while on holidays once, trying to capture these little beauties, I can appreciate this really nice shot. Well done Caryl.
