November 7, 2009 6:59 PM MarieR MarieR And you did it well...congratulations on a superb photo...
November 7, 2009 7:24 AM pxlpwr pxlpwr Thanks everyone for the comments AND VOTES =) @ fless1, yes
it's very real and it depends what your definition of
macro is. Also I cropped it that way because I wanted to
show the feather detail as this site doesn't allow too
much in the way of picture size. @Jeanala, Glad to hear
that! and yes it took some patience to finally get this
"keeper" and you were right I was laying on my
back on a 2X4 deck fence- no la-z-boy that's for sure.
November 7, 2009 4:26 AM lockerz lockerz nooo wayyyyyy
I couldn't understand the picture the first time I
looked but then I was amazed.
excelent job!! please remember me to vote for this one at
last call =) I would apreciate that. thanks!

By the way, I'm new around here and I though of
stopping by to give you my opinion about your photo.
I have a photo at Best Halloween, could be great it you
take a look.
I hope you like my costume

thanks for the space!!
November 6, 2009 11:50 PM fless1 fless1 wow! shame wings are cropped. Is this a real shot? how did
you get it? Not macro, but great shot if it's for real
November 6, 2009 11:01 PM Jeanala Jeanala This is such a neat photo. It looks like it must have been
very hard to capture. Were you laying down to take it? I
am picking glass right now for a stained glass piece I am
making of 2 ruby throated hummingbirds. Your photo is very
helpful to me in picking just the right glass. I am
inspired by it. Nice job!
November 6, 2009 12:49 PM MarieR MarieR I just love this shot!
