    Greetings,

    Long story, short, the lighting conditions were rainy and cloudy but...

    1/160, f 5.8, iso 400, 18-180mm @ 114mm

    Cropped - "Contemplation"

    Neat capture, for sure, but it could do with some PP to liven up the colours a bit. I'd have also like have to seen it taken at a wider aperture for better bokeh, but it's still pretty good as it is.

    The second one is definitely better than cropping it :)

    I prefer the second shot too. Nice capture (two still/sitting hummingbirds)!

    Thanks guys,

    Perhaps with fall approaching I do see two at the feeder at once more often.

    But I still prefer capturing them with their wings moving :mrgreen:
