    I hope this qualifies as "mundane".
    I've been trying to photograph the myriad hummingbird activity in my backyard for some time now (Those guys are hard to photograph, given their speed of movement) and ended up with this one, out of maybe 50-60 shots that were either blurry or not captivating enough.

    Not wanting to exclude anybody else, but isn't it time to close this contest and do the judging and comments?

    I e-mailed kabriDWL. If he does not respond in another 24 hours, then judging this theme falls to NeGRit0.

    Thanks. When I noticed he was a newbie I thought that there may be a chance that he was gone. I in no way expect to win, just appreciate the comments for learning.
