Wow! Marvelous capture of this Costa Rican Hummingbird, TED! Exquisite clarity, color, and detail and marvelous soft BG! Sorry I've been so absent recently: out-of-town twice, bad back, followed by a critical work deadline, and now computer problems!! But I just went to your gallery to see all your Costa Rica shots - they are fabulous, particularly the birds! And I see you got a Quetzal! Looks like you had a terrific trip! Anyway, Huge Congrats on this superb Finalist! #9416031

Congratulations on this gorgeous hummingbird, Ted! You certainly got some beautiful captures from Costa Rica!

(Thanks for your comment on my little blue heron. You know, I went back to check the original raw image and it is pretty true to the blue. I lightened a bit but I think it was the time of year and maybe the lighting hit it. I captured it in February) #9417341

These beautiful little hummingbirds are quite common in the highlands of Costa Rica, which is where this photo was taken.
