[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I think they've left on their magnificent journey south. It's hard to believe these little guys fly thousands of miles during migration. I'll miss them, always a bright spot in the day.

Capturing their activity with flash can yield some nice and interesting results. They are very quick and can move quite a bit during the exposure. I like the results from the on-board flash vs. my speedlight.

Hello Werner, no matter how fast the shutter speed it is really difficult to capture the hummingbirds wings!Yet, this is the beauty of these shots, it tells us so much about this little bird.
I really like your shot,the bright eye and the sharp beak are very clear.

Hi Werner,
A fine capture of this little nervous bird in flight.
Great details in its face and beak. Nice movement of the wings.
Such a difficult task to obtain such a beautiful shot of the hummingbird.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

A captured angel, a moment, a vision.


Hallo Werner
Es ist nicht leicht ein Vogel im Flug zu Fotografieren und dann auch noch scharf zu bekommen dir ist es mit diesem Bild gelungen geiles Bild schön freigestellt klasse Arbeit

Hello Werner! This truly is a great shot! The colors came through so nicely, the gilt too, and the twinkle in the eye is a bonus. Ours left southern Ontario the first weekend of September. However, the odd one still comes to the feeder. They provide such wonderful entertainment. Congratulations on a special capture! Thanks, Linda
