    Did you try to crop so, that the bird would have been less centrally?

    I'm glad you mentioned it was sleeping, I would have thought it had a blind eye. I like the out of focus elements here, they work well.

    Beautiful use of composition and DOF to draw attention to the sleeping bird. Lovely colours.

    The soft background works well to draw the eye to the bird. I might have chosen a tighter crop with the bird off centre...

    What a lovely photo! I've never seen a snoozing hummingbird before. (Actually I have never seen a hummingbird in real life.) In my top few.

    Good capture of the bird, though focus could be sharper. IMO, cropping off much of the top and left to a square format, with the bird upper left and the green and reddish vegetation bottom and right, would make a nice composition.
