What a fantastic opportunity. You have done well to get it at all - just needs to be a little sharper for perfection.

Hi Mirla,

You're lucky to be able to photograph these lovely birds and if this is a daily occurence then whilst this is a great shot I think you can do better with a little more thought.

The first thing I did was to type hummingbird into Google Images and I noticed that the best images there were with the wings blurred and the body sharp. I feel that you need to slow down the shutter speed a little until the wings are slightly blurred. Also you need to make sure that you have a clear shot of the bird so it isn't hidden behind leaves.

You've managed to blur the background superbly here and had the shot had those two elements I mentioned above, it would be brilliant. You must get the birds eyes sharp though, that is very important.

Keep trying and posting here, I'm sure we are all eagerly awaiting the great shots that you have the potential to make.

Hope this helps
