Hummingbird in my yard. Forgot to set the white balance after shooting in an ice rink. I decided I liked the cooler tones, and it matched the color of my walls.

Skatol, nice capture.  Looks like something a painter would do with the flight in the background.

Thanks Jack.  Just lucky timing during the burst shot.

Luck?  I know all about luck.  If not for luck I'd have few shots to display!  But I'm sure you're persistent too, like me and it pays off more times than one would think.  Keep it up.

Hate to be posting more of the same but I guess I'm stuck until maybe another month.

Very nice shot Skatol. I like the composition with the flying bird in the background.

6 FPS doesn't hurt either.  Please keep posting.  I get tired of my own repetitive images but enjoy seeing others.  Beautiful detail.  Gotta love that lens combo!

Thanks again Click.  As I said before, luck and 6 FPS.
