Wow, nice capture, and I like the way the pink of the bee balm is repeated throughout the picture: in the background and in the bird's wings.

Just a bit underexposed for the HB. Female Ruby-throated.... or female broad-tailed. The flower is nicely in focus and properly exposed.

I love to see birds photographed in at least a natural environment (hummer with flower not hummer with feeder or no feeder/flower at all), much more difficult and challenging. Great POV and good BG albeit with a fair bit of noise. Nice catchlight and very shallow DOF.
