I love your title! Great job captureing the wings. I have tried to shoot these guys before and it is very tricky. You really need to pay attention to your background though, it really detracts from this shot.

nice idea, but the flash really takes away from the shot. i don't know if it's a limitation of your camera or not, but the shot would have been stronger if you had been able to get in a bit closer, as well.

Good stopped motion on the hummingbird! I think I might prefer a shot with a background that was less dark.

Good color in the HB. Too bad you couldn't have gotten a bit tighter so the bird is a little larger in the frame. Nice job stopping the motion. Good luck in the challenge.
