Magnificent frontal perspective of this hummingbird, really amazing the color and details of the flower.

ISO setting indicate that the light was very low. Lovely image none de less, Paul.

I like the way you catch some different angles on these little beauties, Paul - and this is lovely!

Another nice image of your hand held hummingbird shots. The head on view shows the wing angle and motion it takes very well.
