Wow a wide angle for hummingbirds. The camera must have been right on top of them. I'd love to hear more about the setup.

Excellent capture William. How come you where able to freeze the wings at 1/250 shutter speed?

Wow, these hummingbird shots continue to amaze me. Great job.

What a capture!! Two birds in one shot...I like the title too. My pick for top 10, good luck.

This is amazing. 10

Oooh.. Yet another masterpiece from the DPC resident hummer expert. Amazing clarity on the birds and a pleasing bokeh.
01/07/2011 01:57:54 PM
Not one but TWO Hummers in perfect focus. Something for me to aspire to!

fantastic humming bird capture! 8

oh crap, there goes anyones chances for the blue ;)
Had to come to this one, it's one of those images that, while I am heartily tired of seeing hummingbirds I can't NOT give it a 10! I am sure alot of people are tired of seeing my daughter in my shots but you go with what you're good at yknow? Great capture on this and I am hoping you'll post how you got the background like that, almost looks like you got them in your house.
01/03/2011 01:34:58 AM
OMG! This is awesome capture. 10
01/02/2011 10:18:04 PM
Amazing focus on both birds with a beautiful background! Wow!
01/02/2011 08:34:25 PM
I am assuming this is William?
Holy Smokes! Every time I think you have created the perfect hummingbird picture, you crank out another that is even better! Really hoping that this one doesn't get disqualified, and that you place really high. 9

very nice, great detail, I'm almost looking for the wires that are holding the birds in place, if it wasn't for the motion blur I would have though they are fake birds so you could get this close and with that detail.

Hope there is a bit of the behind the scenes on this one, but until then well done.
01/01/2011 10:39:56 PM
phenomenal. The sharpness on the birds is really just outstanding.
01/01/2011 09:28:49 PM
01/01/2011 07:17:17 PM
Great job. Nice clarity and details, and really good complimentary colors.
01/01/2011 01:20:55 PM
Excellent timing and capture
01/01/2011 11:35:36 AM
wow - what a capture, 2 in 1 and wonderful detail on both
01/01/2011 10:19:00 AM
I gave this one an 8 but would have probably given it a 10 if it did not appear so over sharpened, it is such a great capture and getting 2 of these guys over a flower is just awesome. Great shot
01/01/2011 08:58:33 AM
Very well executed (and not a bird feeder in sight!).

Great stuff.
01/01/2011 05:02:52 AM
