A few years ago, I tried my hand at hummingbird photography but came home with nothing but blurry, badly framed, horrible background shots…

So, I can only say Bravo!

Yes, shots like this require serious talent and serious perserverence.
It is only when one tries to shoot like this oneself that it becomes apparent how difficult this type of photography is.

Another Tour de Force, Glenn
