On I've Arrived in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (6 comments in total)
In reply to:

RuthC: Congratulations, on second place, cmantx, and yet another wonderful capture of a hummingbird. (I think we can acknowledge you to be 'The Expert' in this field!)
The muted greens in the background really enhance the brighter colours of the little bird, with such intricate details in all of its feathers. Ruth :-)

Thank You, Ruth. Most of the year I have plenty of hummingbird subjects to stay in practice. This particular bird has set up defending my feeders from others. And from the shade of a nearby tree. He has stopped my hummingbird shots cold since he allowed me to get this shot. :(

Congratulations Percy on your well deserved first place. Spot on focusing on the tiny ant eye. I tried the reverse lens Macro and I just finally gave up, and returned to my Macro Lens. I found it takes lots of patience and practice. You have it down.

On Gorilla in the A To Z - Letter G challenge (6 comments in total)

Powerful is correct, and well photographed to achieve it. When I saw it I thought this is something that never should happen. A Gorilla in a cage makes me sad and angry. I'd like to hear from the photographer to know his/her thoughts on why they took the shot.

Only 333 votes? Arachnophobia must be more prevalent than I thought.

Congrats on placing second Ruth, it's a nice capture, and good job in finding it.

I had this shot doing better than it finished. It's the most powerful shot entered. A capture about survival in the wild and how tough these animals lives are. I think some voters just don't want to view that, and their entitled to that opinion.
I'd have titled it "Sorry, But I Can't Get My Food From The Grocery"

Great capture. Perfect timing and composition.

Fantastic shot especially in what had to be really low light.

Great capture. The light and the cub looking right at the camera really makes it for me. Just how close do they allow you to get to them? 300mm seems dangerously close.

In reply to:

babalu: Beautiful -hard to believe it's a tele, focus is right on, very good blurred background!

I have a Tamron 90mm macro also. It is a sharp lens. I have gotten lots of mileage out of it.

The DOF is cranked up but I think the Tamron 200-500 does very well for smooth Bokeh. There is a crepe myrtle tree about 10ft back from the hummingbird.

On Birds in the Nest challenge (17 comments in total)

Swamynirmal, I agree with private custards comments. I think it would be a good idea to revise the challenge. Maybe the challenge could be for shots of bird parents feeding there young "fledglings" outside of the nest. The young birds follow the parents for quite awhile after they leave the nest. I'm sure many people have shots of bird parents feeding their fledglings. I hope you will agree to revise the challenge. I believe birds in the nest should not be disturbed.
