Great shot Mick. You had a good idea coming back when the light was most optimum. Love the colors, the pumpkins and the leaves on the big tree, as Ruth has aptly described.
Great shot Percy. You find such interesting subjects.
RuthC: Congratulations, cmantx, on another outstanding capture of a rufous hummingbird, and another well-deserved win in this weekly challenge. This is really beautiful, with wonderful details in the feathers, the bright black eye, and enough blurred movement in the wings to indicate to us that it is in a hurry to reach the flowers. The muted greens of the background enhance the subject superbly. Ruth :-)
thank You Ruth. I'm Lucky to have such a nice specimen hanging around my feeders.
PERCY2: Congratulations Carmen!
Thank You, Percy.
Jahled: Breathtaking! Awesome capture
Thank You, Jahled.
I think my DSLR setup would be very hard pressed to get this quality DOF that you got in this shot at F 5.2. (It doesn't have F 5.2 :) ) I would need a $10,000 F 2.8 lens for that.
You got the focus spot-on where it needed to be, on the eye, head, torso.
Very nice shot of my favorite type of bee. I'd focus on the 5 people that loved the shot and gave it 5 stars. Did you spot them sleeping?
Thank You, Mick.
Congratulations, Yuki. Great shot, very nice feather detail.
ysal: Another beauty Carmen!
Great landscape shot Mick. I love the soft lighting. Just the right amount of blur in the water fall. Congratulations.
Well photographed, beautiful jumper. What was it standing on? It seems to have some similar colors to the spider.
Very nice capture, congratulations.
The Mick: Haha. Cute description. ;o) Beautiful bird and very nicely taken.Cheers,Mick
Thanks Mick, I thought it odd behavior. He must of been going for some very small insect that I couldn't see.
RuthC: Another stunning capture of a little hummingbird, cmantx, and worthy of third place in this challenge. Once again, you've achieved beautiful colours and arrangements of the primary and secondary subjects to encourage us to take a closer look. Beautiful details in the hummingbird's delicate feathers. Ruth :-)
Thank You Ruth, I love your analysis of the photo.
Congratulations Percy. Great capture. You are Mr. Reverse Lens. :)
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.

Nice capture. I like the cable in the shot.
