Leaving work a bit early gave me a chance to watch the backyard birds. Nothing unusual, but a nice way to spend an afternoon. Thanks for looking.
Nancy

I went back and worked on the noise. There is a lot of noise here.

Great Hummer bathing shots, Nancy. NR would give the background a more creamy look.

nice shots Nancy, Your backyard set up looks very similar to Tony's. Nice job on the hummers, a nice suggestion on the NR too on the BGD's.

The first three look pretty unusual to me.
Would love to have hummingbirds in the backyard. Well done, Nancy.

Bath time at the Hazen's
Wonderful work on those first two frames Nancy, outstanding detail and accurate color! The water adds a great element to the shot and they sure look happy

Great stuff my friend, keep it up

I worked on reducing the noise. There was a lot of it. I hope they are better. Thanks for the help.

Thank you, Tony. I thought I had added enough NR, but they were super noisy. I tried to smooth the BG a bit more. I'm looking forward to your Rufous Hummer shots.

Thank you, Herb. I did try to go back and fix those BG. They sure were noisy.
This fountain was inspired by Tony's fountain. He showed us the set up and we made a similar one. I'm so grateful, because all the birds love this fountain.

We are so lucky to have hummingbirds year round here. The best time for them is in August. We get the migrating hummers then. Thanks for your kind words.

Thank you so much, Tom. I so appreciate your compliment. Your hummers are outstanding. I'm still working on the PP. These were especially noisy. I thought the first pass at NR would work, but it needed more.

I'm looking forward to your hummers this summer too.
