Well its been awhile here. Been super busy and that is no excuse. I want to thank all the folks that critiqued me over the motns i think it has defiantely made me better.

Anyway up at camp site in Rocky Mountain National forest and my goal was to get a freakin shot of a hummingbird at my feeder. Well after a 100 shots cause they are tricky little dudes. I think I have a couple and I mean just a couple that I like. I cropped this one down a bit. However they are hard to shoot. I would sit at one side of feeder and they would come in at the other side. So it was a game of cat and mouse all day with these little dudes.

Anyway here is one of my shots of hope you enjoy it. please let me know my do's and don'ts as always. Baseball season statred so I will be sending in pics for that to get crititiqued on so I can get better!

Thanks all!

Well congratulations, you got one!

They are so difficult to shoot you are lucky to get one at all, so well done.

Its a little dark, so the only suggestion I can give is to brighten the bird a little as in the od.
Its so small cropping any more would ruing the shot.
