    I took this today while waiting for Eagles to fly by (they did).
    Natural everything, cloned out a couple leaf fragments.

    love this one with the pose and the leaves, there is some noise visible but not bad for D500 and ISO 6400. Looks like your majority of shots are high ISO, If I were you I'd be shooting with a D5 under these conditions. the lower noise will make a difference at 6400

    Love, love the toes on the leaf.
    I see some cloning artifacts on the RHS of frame. Easy to tidy up.
    I also see some noise in the tail and would address that in PP.
    A fun image!

    Apart from the noise on the image, this is very nice. Maybe clone out the OOF flower at the bottom

    Will

    Yes apart from the noise this is a very fun image. I agree, for your area a D5 would be the ticket!!

    Pretty neat how the hummer has its feet on that leaf. Nice feeding frame.
