Q: Why are some of the contest photos obviously photoshopped?

A: Do you know?

Ruby Throated Hummingbird..... This is one of the first photos that I took back in July using my new 100mm f2.8 lens. I hope you can see why this is now my FAVORITE lens.

This challenge was difficult... hard to choose just one of my favorites.... but, I had to go with my most favorite subject... I hope you like it as much as I do.

The Lightbox is a must!!!
