A Broad-tailed Hummingbird almost frozen at 1/3200 of a second. Even at those speeds I still got a tiny bit of movement on the wings and could not truly freeze the bird in mid air. The speed at which these birds move is something I still marvel at.

Hummingbirds flutter their wings at a remarkable 80 times per second! They do NOT flap their wings, they rotate them in a figure 8, which  enables them to go BACKWARDS in the air and to hover in ONE SPOT!

colorful Humming Bird by David G Hemming. The humming bird is our favorite bird! I love seeing these beautiful birds our in nature. It's the simple things in life that make us happy.

This is the most awesome picture of a hummingbird I've ever seen.  The details in the feathers is amazing.
