hello Loren,

Nice shot of this hummingbird, but I think it's heavily cropped, I see a lot of noise in the background and there is almost no detail in the bird.
Perhaps you need a lens with more focal length.

Greetings,

Wim

Wim, thank you for your comment.

You are correct, of course. This photo was heavily cropped, and looking at it now with your comment in mind, I see it as you do. Thank you for this honest critique.
You have opened my eyes to a habit I have become a bit careless with.
