I like flying photos with some movement showing in the wings and that one is nice.

squirl033, I think you did okay at trying to get this little fella. I included a link to a site that the photographer loves capturing hummingbirds and does a good job. Not sure how she does it....

thanks, Mandy. it really helps when the hummer is out in the sunlight, against a blue sky background! most people do that sort of thing by setting up a feeder to attract hummers, and waiting patiently for them to appear... when you stumble across one while walking around a park, and find yourself shooting into a shady area, with the bird against a darker background, it's almost impossible to get the shutter speed needed to stop their little wings... this was taken at 1/250 - i'd need at least 4x that speed to have any hope of freezing this little guy in flight. one of these days, i'll get one in a good spot, and have enough light to get a nice clear shot! :G
