LOVE those hummers! My favorites are the Rufous with the bee and the male Annas with the head aglow. Really like the bright white highlight and radiant red color.

That nuthatch shot is worth some praise too. You got it to do a GREAT pose for you. All they ever do for me is scamper around the tree trunks and branches frustrating me with their friskiness. My best shot came after I found the spot where one would take the sunflower seed it snatched from the feeder to then crack it open. Unfortunately it was a deep shade location so most of my shots showed it's movement ... and mine!

Congrats on the Photo of the Week selection. Awesome shot!

Mark

Stunning photographs, these humming birds. They are so swift yet you were able to capture them sharply. Congrats Alex Sir.
Please do share the lens and the camera used. Also any PP.
Regards.
