 I hope the processing is OK on this.  I'm on a 11 year old 13 inch laptop.  600mm ext tube F14 @ 1/200th ISO 320.  Feeder cloned out and cropped some.

Great combination of wing blur, focused and sharp head. Colors are lovely, terrific use of soft flash. Great job at 1/200 speed!

Love the little twist, headed straight for the flower- beautifully caught and composed. Congrats on EP.
