Another Ruby Throated hummingbird shot. Heavily Cropped (!00%+ crop) ISO 1600 1/1600s, F8, 270mm. You can see where he appears to have been in a scrap and lost some feathers on his back. They are pretty feisty!.

A young squirrel tried to get to my bird feeder today when I was shooting hummingbird images, so I shooed him away from the feeder and he decided to munch on some plum blossoms while letting me get very close.

Hairy woodpecker attacking my suet feeder. Two similar images, both processed in DxO with the standard profile. Small K adjustment only, then cropped to same size, one is F8 and the other F9. Shot a few moments apart.
At full resolution the F9 is noticeably better but at forum size it isn't as obvious.
