A Little Winged Jewel by natureguy A Little Winged Jewel by natureguy
I have been working ... trying to get a pair of humming birds used to my presence. For the past week I have been spending the last hour of light near where they have been feeding. Well it is paying off in my getting within 30 feet of this one as it was sitting on a small branch. I hope to be able to get within 15 feet or so for some super close up pics of them, by the end of 2 weeks. It just takes time and patience...

Enjoy!

Aw, the noise.... brilliant capture, but the noise in the background....
Nevertheless, very, very beautiful.

Hi, Thank you!
That green is a leaf in the foreground... I was shooting through a small opening in the branches... I can live with that little patch of green out of focus blob...

Oh ...yeah that noise, well it was taken late in the day with the sun fading fast...I would rather have gotten this shot about an hour earlier, that way I could have used a lower ISO... and eliminated that problem.

Sure, the conditions are rarely perfect and we have to adapt to them.... But after you've taken the shot, you could edit the picture and reduce the noise digitally. I think a capture like this deserves it :)
