Great shot Percy. The eye is spot on. The 2 .5 votes definitely is unwarranted.

The Mick: Beautiful shot of that hummer! Thanks for sharing and best of luck in the challenge!
Mick

Thanks Mick. This particular bird really stood out as an exceptional specimen. I started planning on how I was going to get a shot of it as soon as I spotted him.

RuthC: Congratulations, cmantx, on winning 'My Best Photo of the Week' Challenge with this superb capture of a rufous hummingbird. This entry has been leading the field all week with the voters, so it isn't a fluke that you won. Your image is wonderfully clear with stunning details and beautiful colours in the feathers of this little bird, enhanced by the soft greens of the background. You should be justifiably proud of your achievement, and the win today. Ruth :-)

Thank You Ruth. I look forward to your description of my image whenever they place in the challenge.

RuthC: Congratulations, cmantx, on the beautiful capture of your very shiny Grackle. This entry certainly meets the theme of this challenge and deserves this top placing. I like the way you've achieved the dark bronze colours of the bird's plumage, highlighted by the iridescent head and neck. A real beauty! Ruth :-)

Thanks Ruth, Taming the highlights of such a bird was tricky.

In reply to:

ysal: Stunning shot Carmen! The sheen on the feathers is fantastic! Beautiful colors.

Thanks Yuki. Grackles are viewed as pest birds here. This particular species nest's in the pines from spring to early summer. I find the males to be beautiful especially in the right light.

The Mick: Beautifully exposed bird. Great job! Those colors are outstanding!
Mick

Thank You Mick. I noticed when he went to feed he perched in a certain spot that reflected his colors well.

On The Shiny Jewels of Her Life in the Naturally Shiny challenge (8 comments in total)

Great shot, and quite an achievement 1st and 2nd place. She seems to be anxiously looking your way. Do they actually protect the eggs from predators or place them in many different spots?

On Red Shiny Head in the Naturally Shiny challenge (11 comments in total)

That's a Great shot Percy! The Detail, especially the wings, and the beautiful red color against the lush green. I've seen a similar dragonfly here in TX especially near the Gulf Coast, but I haven't been able to get close to it. Good Job!
