Re: Hummingbirds and the D4 visits Ecuador - Large Images

Thanks for all the kind words.

As for the shutter speed, 1/250 is what the camera uses, but that is not what is freezing the motion. I am using up to 7 flashes, all at 1/64 to 1/16 power which is equal to 1/10,000 to 1/5,000 second shutter speed. This combination is what freezes the wings.
