Having a Swinging Good Summer!

Two Hummingbirds

The hummingbirds are well captured and their fast moving wings look good. The lighting brings out the colors and a nice shine on the feathers. I like how well the feet show on the left one. Too cute!

Lovely capture of these two at the feeder (mine don't share, one chases the others off). Good stop action so that the details are readily seen. Good color throughout. The water drops are an added bonus. Good luck in the contest.

A beautiful picture of the pair of Hummingbirds enjoying a feast from your syrup feeder with rain drop clinging to it's surface & glistening in the daylight. the Hummingbird's iridescence also glowing in the light. Beautiful composition framing & lighting taken with superb camera techniques & sharp focus.

Looks like that pair of birds are having a great time out there! Your fine and central composition offers us an moment during their feeding. Exposure and sharpness are good. Nicely taken!

Nice action stop photo of multiple hummingbirds. The focus and clarity are very sharp of the birds and the raindrops. The colors are vivid , natural and true. You may want to consider straightening the horizon a bit, if you have enough room on the left side of the photo, as this is a contest entry. Good luck

I love hummingbirds. Wonderful picture catching two at once. They move so quick and dart around with each other. You did a wonderful job catching 2 feeding together!

Nice timing to capture two hummers in flight positions at your red feeder! Nice stop of this action, I see the raindrops too! Well focused, clear image with good exposure , the colors and tones appear natural. It's a good summertime scene! Well presented! Best wishes to you in this contest!

    Thank you. Is Alaska warm enough for hummingbirds in the summer? They are draining my feeder here about 3 times a day, getting ready to fly south when the night temperatures hit 50 (my observation anyway).

I like the theme and the playfulness. The way it appears to be swinging brings fun movement to it. The birds are so precious. The background color isn't my favorite but that's nothing against the subject or your craft. Nice compositiontoo!

    Thank you. Yes, a blue sky would be far preferable but I took this on a cloudy day.
