a few pics of fast wings

  1. took a few pics of the swarm of hummingbirds at the feeder at my house. there is at least 12 in the area of this one feeder. very difficult animals to shoot. it is very overcast so i want to slow the shutter speed, but i want to speed up the shutter to capture the very fast wings. using a flash helped some. focus was probably the hardest part cause of how close i was and how fast they move. C&C is more than welcome. these aren't excellent, but were my few best of the shoot.
