    Superb shot here Trudy ! Great capture.
    note: I would crop off the orange in the lower right corner. Would give the photo more effect. But, that’s just me ! lol !

  • Thanks Ralph…. I did crop without it and thought it gave it more purpose showing where it was headed, so I left it in…still thinking…LOL…

  • Okay Ralph, I took your suggestion and took it out but left one pic with it in…we’ll see now….LOL

    The image is awesome both ways, I almost like the feeder better, the composition lends itself more to this, but what I know? lol art is subjective….

  • Thank you Diane….I keep looking at it trying to figure out which way I like better and like you, I’m not sure either…thanks so much.

    Hi Trudy,

    I like the idea of the feeder too. But, I did not know it was a feeder. We only see a small part. I am not criticizing your photo either ! I’ve got it in my favorites !
    It’s a great, great shot !

  • No Ralph, I so much appreciated your taking a moment to give your opinion, and I think I agree…. I’m working on hummingbirds this week…trying to get that perfect shot/angle…thanks for the fav too…

    Wow…what a great capture! I am leaning toward the photo without the feeder. I like the simplicity of the bird in flight…the focus is completely on the bird, everything else is negative space. I LOVE the top photo:) It’s as if the bird is flying straight toward you…you are one with the bird…lol!

  • After looking at it, I’m with you too….that little spot of red after viewing it took your eyes off the hummer….thank you so much for your viewpoint, much appreciated…;-)
