  1. Actually, thats "Mr." Anna. We were setting up on some flowers and this little fellow showed up for about a minute. ISO 400, 300mm f/2.8 + 1.7 tcon and seriously cropped. Thoughts, comments, constructive criticism appreciated.

    Beautiful Ron. Is it just a coincidence that the flowers are the same color as the jeweled area on the bird? Very nice. :smile:
     
  3. very nice even with heavy cropping. Great shot!
     
  4. nice job of color coordinating the flower and bird. I'm really impressed! :)
     
  5. Beautiful colors, Ron.
     
  6. Ron, the hummers sure love that Mexican sage! I planted a whole bunch of it just for them. The problem is it's hard to get a good picture of both, the flowers and the hummer. You got them both here, though I think the color is a little more pink than the real stuff. How did you post process your shot?

  7. That Anna's has awesome throat development, a cleaner shot (which you will get eventually) will be fantastic!
     
  8. Post on this one was cropped, adjust exposure +1/3, add contrast and sharpen. All done in NikonView Editor.

    Will have to plant some of this stuff in the back yard

    Thanks for the kind replies.
