Beautiful. Well done, Catherine.I just love the colorful little hummers! We were in Colombia last year with Glenn and saw lots of beauties; plus the myriad of spectacular tanagers. This is a little buff tail (?)--unprocessed, straight out of camera 7DMII + 100-400II handheld--that I then used in an art project with multiple layers of texture I made plus blending modes, cloning.
What a beauty! Great light; nice background and color.Was walking around a local island looking for any of the local raptors, unsuccessfully, when a Horned Lark flew in and started singing. It took me a bit to drop down and then push the rig over to almost MFD but I think the effort was worth it. Light was coming and going behind the the late afternoon clouds.

For anyone interested, also a short snippet of 4K video I took slightly later when the light finally started to go, https://youtu.be/zlaTFm4n0Nw . I keep forgetting about the 4K crop factor but really did not want to mess up a good thing by moving backwards.
