Lovely closeup. Beautiful bird.

Oh my! This is the absolute closest look I've ever had of one of these little charmers. Had no idea of the varied colors in their featherings and love those "pleated" wings. Well done, Brian.

Wonderful bird pic...he looks like he has to think about it. The closeup on feathers if wonderful.

Fantastic shot, he looks exhausted from all that flying around. Great detail on the feathers and he is keeping an eye on you.

Yes! This isn't a ruby-throat, is it? Looks like he's wearing a necklace. Awesome focus, Brian. You can see every individual feather.

perfect eye clarity. (and like i left as a comment on gail's most recent hummingbird post) it makes me want to dig out my pencils and attempt to capture those color changes! you've shown layers of color that just call to me but i'd never be able keep the exquisite detail.
