I learned just how difficult hummingbirds are to capture. They are very quick, so you learn to anticipate where they will be. During the middle of the day, I still couldn't get a fast enough shutter speed to come close to stopping their wings. Even bumping the ISO to 3200 wasn't enough. Finally, I learned I had to try early in the day when the sky was clear and the sun shinning right where the bird would be. Finally, after hundreds of trys, I was able to capture this shot.
