Just right from the blue flowers super close to where I was sitting on my little chair, it came for a visit to check out the white flowers.

Nice pose and separation from the background. I like your techs and the high ISO processing.

Another outstanding hummingbird in flight image, Karl. I was curious as to which flowers the hummingbirds had a preference for, if any ? I believe some flowers such as the red bee balms, have not bloomed quite yet, so perhaps when they do, the hummingbirds may have a preference for them, over non-red coloured flowers.

Thanks Paul. They like flowers that produce nectar and their color preference is red in theory. There are many red flowers in that garden but they still go to the blue for a few more days, based on our observations.

Fabulous detail with a click! Interesting about colors. Mine like white blackberry blossoms.
