Default Morning Hummingbird

We have a pair of hummingbirds showing up in the morning. Got to shoot in decent light. Shutter mode, 1/2000, 12 fps burst. I promise I won't post every day, but these guys are so much fun to shoot.

Wow, very nice! The first one could be captioned "Hey, who turned out the lights!".

I was pleased to get the shots, but I'm wondering for sharpness if 1/2000 shutter speed, the FZ150 limit, is really enough. I'm going to try faster with my DSLR and see if it makes a difference. The trade off, however, will be the incredible FZ150 12 fps that makes shots like this far more accessible.
