Default My best Hummer so far

I was out shooting macros of insects when this hummingbird came to the shrub next to me. She buzzed around me for a little bit while I stood very still. She finally decided I was just an inanimate object and started to feed. I quickly unscrewed my closeup diopter and manage to take this shot. Straight FZ35, slightly cropped.

Congratulations Saly!!!! That is a special shot.
Looks like the Hummer had the perfect light to make him really light up.

Saly, that photo is the most excellent photo I've ever seen! The colors are outstanding, the hummer's colors shimmering. The wings blurred, gives the photo a stunning effect!

Wow! Wow! Wow!

You really should send this to a birder magazine for publishing!

Thank you Clint, jj, John, Carol!! I only manage to shoot off about 4 shots and only this one came out. I have to admit, I did a little jig on the spot when I saw this in my preview screen!
