Here is a crop of the first image. Please remember there is no additional sharpening done to the image, just default ACR conversion values.

This crop is still over 2000 pixels on the long side...



So this crop is good enough for GW, but no 42" monitor is needed....

I think this species of bird is incredibly photogenic!!

Cheers,
Marc

Harriet said my comments exactly. I hope to be half as good as you some day.

I was going to put the bird seed out the other day, but the newspapers have been having daily sitings of bears. And, not just at night!

Thanks GW for the very kind comments!

Considering you are a true birding enthusiast, you honor me and thank you for the comments.

And the eyes just draw you in and make you wonder what the bird is thinking. <grin>

I love these images.

Hey Mark,
I was just revisiting your shots of these Hummers, to have such great detail of these small birds is really amazing to me, I feel lucky if I can get that good a shot of ah a goose at 6 feet away let alone such a tiny bird! my hat is off to you.

Thank you Patty! They can be a challenge to photograph, but that day I believe serendipity was working for me.
