Absolutely wonderful! I found it interesting that even @ 1/1600 Tv the wings still show motion; great job. Just enough motion any more it would have been too much - anyless and you end up with a static image.

Great!

This is not an easy shot to pull off at all. Not only did you nail the bird perfectly, but there is great bokeh and the exposure on the flowers is spot-on. Nicely done!

Awesome timeing, just a pity the background it too distracting
  Photographer found comment helpful.

That is a "beyond belief" hummingbird photo. I love the way the light forms circles behind the bird in the background. The color of the flower is lovely, and the bird is incredibly sharp. .especially realizing how fast it is moving. You really got a great capture here!

The large white,dreamy artifacts add a lot to this ethereal shot. Makes it real special. I like it.
