Took this shot today. It looks comical to me like those cartoon shows: a bird bumping into a pole and got its beak stuck there.

Nice! :thumbsup:

All my humming birds failed due to preflash lag... I think after exams I'll get the friends of Bird Park and camp at the humming bird aviary...

Multiflash setup, high shutter speeds. Will solve wing blurring problems.

Sorry guys, I was busy and forgot to visit this forum for many days.

The picture was taken handheld at F14 1/160 with Canon 550EX Flash on.

In flash shots, using higher shutter (not shuttle ;p) speeds is not important. The flash's very short duration will effective freeze motion. And the hummingbird's wings move so fast, I think even 1/4000s cannot freeze it properly.

From now on, anyone caught saying "Shuttle" for "Shutter" will be reported to the Language Police. The penalty: confiscation of your camera!
