Male Hummingbird Showing his Colors
Lens: Pentax FA* 300mm Camera: K5 ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/1000s Aperture: F6.7 
Posted By: SanMat, 08-10-2011, 08:47 AM

From a few months ago, shot near my home. This particular area is a popular choice for the males to perch and show their colors. I added a little vignetting in PP.

One of the best HB shot's I've seen! Most are somewhat boring, the same perspective over and over, but this one really stands out!!!

Luftluss, daacon, Bob, Royw, ramseybuckey,

Many thanks for the kind words. This particular shot has given me some regrets after I sold that FA* 300mm lens. That lens captures a pretty extreme level of detail.

Regards,

Pete
