cmantx: Not sure what the last one was about. It maybe to show how cruel humans are? Making a wild animal a pet? Is the person trying to care for an orphaned animal? I'll need to go to the site to find out.

I'll try not to be so dramatic, is it OK to be concerned? Concern or alarm is what the photographer is hoping for. The Fenic Fox pup pictured was found or captured (if you like drama) out of it's den. Keeping or killing Fenic Foxes is illegal in Tunisia, but is still rampant there. They are endangered throughout the Sahara. That's what the description on the site says.The photograher is trying to bring attention to this issue by shooting this image.

gordzam: Nice shot! And also shows that the Tamron 150-600 can perform quite well full open at nearly 600mm, and I'm glad as I own it as well. Test would let you believe that it's not that good. Congratulations cmantx!

Thank You. I heard the same thing about the Tamron 200-500 but I got lots of nice shots wide open at 500 mm. This one is a step up in sharpness and contrast from the 200-500.

RuthC: Congratulations, cmantx, on your well deserved win in the weekly challenge. I think we can rightly acknowledge you as the DPR Expert Hummingbird Photographer! This is really beautiful! The little bird holds our attention in the centre of the picture, while our eyes lead us from her head, down her beak to the brightly coloured zinnia, the source of nectar. The subject of our attention is in wonderfully sharp focus, while the lavender softens and balances the picture. Ruth :-)

Thank You for the kind words, Ruth.

BoDrey: Congratulations! Excellent shot of a very difficult subject to capture.

Thank You, I've found the biggest problem with tracking one is when they start battling the other hummingbirds for flowers or feeders. It's like "now you see them, now you don't".

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.
