Wonderful capture of the humming bird! Excellent colors and fine details. The gradient bg really is smooth and really adds a punch to an already great visually impacting image.
Like how you framed the left side with the blooms. Great technique and high technical excellence here. A pleasure to view. Congrats on your very well deserved Staff's Choice Award!

This is an area of discussion where for any article discussing a change, you can find another article written to discuss no change at all. An interesting article is contained below:

Thanks for being honest about using a manufactured feeder. I do as well but the "Butterfly Bush (Buddleia davidii) has been a favorite of our hummers for years but now I've read where that plant is non-native and is even invasive. Seems that the bush is native to China, not Maryland. If I ever read that Cheerios is bad for me, I'm gonna hang it up!

Not sure what logic that is based on. We've always had a lot of Ruby Throated Hummingbirds at our cottage 200 miles north of Toronto. Anyway, having said that I'm also guilty of using feeders to attract the hummers. I usually put natural looking sticks all around the feeder so they can perch for a rest and a sitting image.

Hi Lee and Andre.. This is a Anna's , Im in the SF Bay area we typically get Allen's, Rufous, Anna's, Costa's, and the Ruby-Throated. we recently had a Calliope here which was a bit out of his summer breeding range, but did attract many photographers and I never got a really clean shot due to the elbow to elbow shooting .... Thanks for the comment !!

Marcuse, a beautiful bird and composition. To critique, I suggest you include the species of hummer since there are so many kinds, but only range from Chile to Alaska and west to Hawaii. Our European friends and those down under just don't have these wonderful little birds. I wouldn't even trade a Kookaburro for one. Is your photo of a hatch year ruby throat?


Lee Duer Lee Duer   {K:293} 8/4/2014
Andre, without manufactured feeders these little guys would still not have migrated North to Canada. Maybe New Jersey? Of course if we do get warmer winters they'll probably overwinter in New Jersey.

Hi Markus,
I didn't notice any discoloration. Congrats on the award!
That new little "for sale gallery" is a good idea for this site. It looks like someone is taking a bit more interest in the site and encouraging people to post more. Not a bad thing I guess.

omg.. an impressive capture.. i don't able to catch this one !


Bruce Morrison Bruce Morrison   {K:1767} 8/2/2014
Beautiful natural shot, I love the uncluttered background too which makes the bird stand out more, Bruce


Marcus Armani Marcus Armani   {K:36599} 8/2/2014
Thanks Andre!! The problem with this image is I had a watermark at the bottom and I left some discoloration removing it... too much photo theft going on ....

Excelente captura, muy buena imagen y hermosos colores!
Muy buen trabajo!


Andre Denis Andre Denis   {K:66407} 8/2/2014
Nice job once more Marcus.
I much prefer Hummingbird shots with something natural in the image rather than manufactured feeders. Easier said than done though.
