Hovering Hummer

Here’s a pose I got from a morning hummer near our feeder this morning.

Is this a composite: No
D500, Nikon 200-500 lens, Nikon 1.4 TC, monopod, 1/1600th, 700mm, ISO 5600, AI Clear, cropped to 2826 x 2153


Perfect pose, wonderful detail and lighting! I love the dark, moody BG with just enough detail to be interesting but not distracting.

Looks like he is doing a swan dive into the feeder, Dave. Beautiful colors, detail and the OOF background sets him off perfectly. Very nicely seen and captured.

Hi Dave
Diane and Linda have nailed it, Great looking Hummingbird.

What a shot ! The pose is priceless, like some prima donna … very nice work (again)! Cheers, Hans

What a cutie! The background really sets this off. Well done.
