Again in Rockie Mountains and chasing Humming birds. Tried to get them at the feeder but I managed to get one perched on a tree and he let me get up close to him.

An unusually close and detailed shot of a hummingbird, Paul. It's a shame you couldn't include the bird's tail, that would have made so much difference. Being this close, I think a vertical format might have worked better, and also moving your camera a touch to the left in order to include the whole of the leaf shoots on the left. In my modification I simply used the Smart Photo Fix in Paintshop Pro, then cropped so that the leaf shoots are reduced (this makes it look less like a mistake) and the right side has minimal distractions. The background over the top of the bird's head makes it look as if it has something growing out of it, so I cloned that out. I also enhanced the catchlight in its eye.
