Q: Can I offer poster prints of my images for sell?

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

My hummingbird feeder is alive with activity. I can sit there with my eyes closed and hear them calling to each other and the flutter of their wings as they zoom past. I caught this one using off camera strobes. I wish the person that invented the energy saving shut off on the flash units had not bothered.

Thank you for the spotlight Daniele!

    I remember capturing a hummingbird and posted it here and jpg deleted it. That was a while back when they still have a strict rule. I did a color manipilation, I think.
