This hummingbird (Campylopterus hemileucurus) is coming towards me pretty fast.. This is one of the biggest ones. Which does not mean these shots are easy Smile

Thanks for all your kind comments on the Great tit among the blossoms.
Sorry if it looks a lot darker here than in PS. Go figure or look here

I'd probably have trouble just seeing it nevermind capturing it, Annette.

A marvelllous inflight capture Annette, I like the feeling of motion from the whirring wings. If i'd have tried snapping this it would have ended up blurred no doubt!Blush

Very difficult shot indeed.

The difference in appearance is due to the fact that ProPhoto RGB is the colour space thats assigned to the image, whereas it needs to be sRGB for the web. Some browsers will render a non sRGB incorrectly.
