    That was just a quick and dirty one I took last evening. The good stuff will
    follow. I've got my feeders dripping with Hummingbird Cocaine so the little
    fellas will be comin around to my way of thinkin soon.

    Hummingbird cocaine? I think any faster and they'll explode. Or at
    least warp time...

    Hummingbird wings are so fast it's next to impossible to get shots
    where they're *not* blurred to some extent - even with strobes it's hard to
    get a clear shot. And then there's the focal plane shutter issue, which
    means it can make sense to use slow film and a slower shutter speed,
    believe it or not, and provide all of the light from the strobe.

    Good luck with it! I never got anything decent when they were
    visiting my feeder, a few years back.
