Another flower, another Hummingbird. :-)

I also use a noise removal software that I recommend that everybody use, it's Imagenomic Noiseware Professional.

Buzzsaw and Sabine seemed to be the same person judging by the hummerbird photos they took. The one here is terrific. Would be wonderful if I could have a backyard garden and set up a feeder for this kind of challenging shots.

Thanks Hung, no flash used on this shot.

WK, yeah it sure is nice having my property back up against a park preserve full of a huge variety of birds. I have an area under my Oak tree with all kinds of set ups ie... logs stuffed with suet, a variety of flowers for Hummingbirds and butterflys as well as many feeders throughout the property to keep them around. I personally like it when the Pheasants come in for the pile of cracked corn out back.

Its such a peaceful feeling seeing a perfect shot. Thanks for giving me that feeling Mike.
By the way, those Imagenomic PS plugins are very nice indeed. Thanks for the info.

Great color contrasts[how's that, I spelled it the American way:G:G], and the OOF BG certainly adds to make it a superb shot.

Thanks Bynx, Jake and Sabine! That Imagenomic PS noise plug is my absolute favorite and that includes using Noise Ninja in the past. :-)

Thanks Bigfootpete, I appreciate the kind words and give a special thanks to Nikons sharpest, most contrasty prime fixed glass... the 300 F/2.8. :-)
