This is amazing! I love all of the different colors on the bird and the branch (or at least that is what I think it is). The lighting is perfect; I could go on. Stunning capture, fantastic job on this!

Very beautiful !

Behind The Lens

Location
in my neighborhood ,Fairfax district in the heart of Los Angeles
Time
right before sunset
Lighting
i was waiting for the light to be soft right before sunset to make sure i would be able to capture all the colors on that little bird's feathers
Equipment
that was shot with an Olympus E-5 and a zuiko 70-300mm lens, shot hand held with natural light only
Inspiration
i always walk by this spot almost every day and that little hummingbird is always there at the same time, but usually flying around very, very fast.i took the opportunity to shoot him while he appeared to be resting for a brief moment
Editing
my usual workflow, mostly some adjustments in Adobe Raw,then some brief adjustments in Adobe Photoshop,minor sharpening and that's about it
In my camera bag
these days i use Sony full frames cameras, my workhorse being the a7rll,and my back up camera being the original a7,with various Sony and Zeiss lenses,Manfrotto tripod and really Right Stuff ball head and plates
Feedback
be patient and keep returning to the same spots, most animals are territorials, and are creatures of habits
