    Thank you for all your comments!

Jade - Thanks, several others commented that the bird is getting lost but that was actually the look I was going for. I liked the harmony between the colors of the bird and her surrounding.

    I had this third overall. I think it is an exceptionally good image, all the more since it is taken in a natural setting, and with such fine lighting and framing. I'd be very pleased if I captured one like this.

    Beautiful shot. Love how the shallow depth of field isolates the subject.

    these are small birds and energetic so getting a shot is all about timing.
i would have cropped using the frame of the branches but without losing the tail

    Great capture. I might have cropped some of the left branch to highlight the hummingbird a bit more.

    I didn't know that they stayed still for so long, good capture.

    I like the parallel between the beak and the twig on the left.
Nicely sharp

    I love this little bird but to seems to get lost in the background. I think a tighter crop would have highlighted it more.

    Nice capture in a natural setting. While blurred the background is still rather distractingly busy.
