Still have a couple of rufous hanging around. This young lady looks to have something malformed on her beak. It does not keep her from eating though, thank goodness. They are so pretty.

As always your nits, crits and comments are most appreciated.

Hope you enjoy ,

Birdie

Wow, these are both stunners, well done!

I'd probably replace the dark green background around the head in the first shot with the lighter colour from the rest of the background, but that's a minor nit.

Cheers,

Very nice shots, the first is my favourite. Nice to see them in the winter.

2 very nice shots Birdie. 2 has a slight edge for me for the greater dof. I tried to check the exif, but it has been stripped. Do you "save for web"? That removes the exif. If you use "save as", the exif should remain attached so that others can see the shot details. and maybe offer some additional tips ~ Ron

Thank you Harry ! I agree about the dark green. Not sure my selection skills are what they need to be to do it without messing it up, but will give it a go.

Hummers still? Lucky you!

Are you removing the NR on the body with a brush? Looks like you missed a few spots?
#2 is looking nice, any thoughts on a little reduction on the BG brightness on this one?

I like #2, but I agree those white spots in the BG could be taken down a few levels. Don

Nice captures, Birdie. Looks like its beak has been going through a lot
I like the second shot best

Nice work, Birdie.
The second is my pick. Maybe the BG is a little too strong?
