A delightful capture...I'm inclined to start paying more attention to hummingbirds...a few come around to our honeysuckles once in a while...

Linda- We have the feeders up and several have come around, but as yet been able to get some good shots of them. I am so jealous of this stunning beautiful picture of this hummingbird get its nectar from a natural source like these beautiful flowers. You are such a master and the way you got the brilliant colors and the amazing details is awesome. This is a must for my favorites.
Exceptional work my friend.
Have a great weekend, enjoy, take care.
