Allen's Hummingbird       ©2013 ysal
Panasonic DMC-GF1       7th place, 126 points
1/200s, f5.6, ISO 320, 400mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Adjusted exposure and color saturation, denoised and sharpened, cropped, using PS Elements.       Extra Info: It was a cool day and this hummer stayed calm as I approached very slowly. He was perched on an isolated leaf, which gave me a nice uncluttered background.

    I really appreciate all your nice comments! I'm fortunate to live in an area with lots of hummingbirds, and I've found that they are very approachable if you know how to behave around them!

    I love hummingbirds and Allen's are one of my favorite. They have quite the personality. This is a wonderful shot full of excellent feather detail, sharp focus on the eye and a perfect background. Yep, definitely a favorite. :-)

    Great shot & details. I can never find them when they get in the branches, good thing he was on that leaf.

    IMO the background using a square crop to reduce the background

    Simple, clean composition shows off the bird to it's best. The subject is cute and full of texture.

    Amazing you were able to get this capture, not often see a hummingbird at rest. Nice detail and clarity of the shot.

    Wonderful colors and background bokeh. Anytime you can get a hummingbird in such good focus, with such a marvelous background - you have a winning photo. Well done!
