Congratulations to Tim Nicol for winning the recent Birds In Flight photography assignment with the image, “Hummingbird & Columbine.”
“This shot was taken in the golden hour on a beautiful summer evening in our hummingbird garden up in the mountains of Eastern Washington (Republic),” says Nicol. “We have many feeders up with perches, water features and flowers just for the hundreds of hummingbirds that we get here. We enjoy nothing more than spending as many hours as possible in the spring and summer in this peaceful place watching and photographing our favorite birds.”
Nikon D7100, Tamron 150-600mm lens at 400mm, Induro tripod. Exposure: 1/500 sec., f/9, ISO 640. Very slight cropping, sharpening and color correction edits made using Photoshop.
