Re: Can someone explain this photo?

X-Wing swallow indeed 😂.  R2D2, what confuses me is that I've taken photos of hummingbirds with similar settings but this is the first time I've seen this affect. Is it simply that this wing was moving faster horizontally? Or is there some other contributing factor?

Actually I use the raw burst mode quite often but this is the first time I've seen this effect; but also the first time shooting this particular bird.
