She loves you! There's no other explanation for the look in her eyes and the wonderful connection this shot makes.

Not to mention the free food! These birds are very trusting of me and I'm only inches away from their feeder. Most will hand feed.

They weigh nothing and you barely feel there claws on your finger.

I know that my parents get some in northern Ontario, Canada but I'm not sure that they'll come to you. We'll have to see I guess. It would be amazing to have them on your hand.

I have a 25 mm extension tube on it too. I'm getting tired of standard hummer shots.

How did you get this colorful background, Walt?
Reply
:icongood-e-nuf:
Good-e-nuf Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2011
Thanks, Kevin! The vibrant color is supplied by the background of the sun to the upper right and flowers to the lower right. The colors were enhanced using LAB color/brightness-contrast in the 'a' and the 'b' channels in the channels palette in photoshop.

The background color in this is killer. I love the details of the bird's feathers. Just an amazing image.

The only problem with being this close and the lens wide open is the complete lack of DoF. I got her coming into a feeder; the sun to the upper right and flowers below her. Thank for the compliment.
