Testing out new camera before photo team meeting. Wish I could have stayed longer. There were at least three hummingbirds around.
I had no idea I got this shot till my camera did that preview thingy it does after taking the picture. Need to figure out how to turn that off as it could get annoying later on.
But. Am pretty impressed with camera....sometimes. I don't know if I could have gotten this with the other one. Maybe I was just lucky this time around.

Very nice image , good lighting & sharpness on the little one , and a pretty pleasing background to boot !
Have you thought about photoshopping the light green bit on the lower left side ?? just a bit to tone it down ??
persistence pays off with these guy's even though they only seem to sit still for 10 seconds at a time !

Yeah. The rofous humming bird is pretty fiesty, and there were at least two others around and one would take off after the other when it was spotted.
I don't think about photoshop too often. I have it and could do it, but sometimes I don't really think about it.
I'm quite impressed with the camera's ability to take shots in low light. Was quite shady at sundown.
