Caught this hummer hovering with a shutter speed obviously a lot slower than those little wings…he almost appears wingless.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

- Flew, I was about seven or eight feet from the bird---or at least the camera was.
- Martin, I did use some fill flash---I had an SB80 about four feet from the target.

The shot was taken n direct sun light. I was a further 15 feet back from the camera in the air conditioned comfort of my home. I set the camera near the flowers and feeder the hummingbirds frequent, and using the ML-3 IR remote control through the kitchen window, fire away. Hey it’s been hot here in Maryland the last couple weeks…
