Hummingbird Behind Butterfly Bush

September 22, 2007 - 7:39am -- Shawn

Sometimes no matter how fast I set my shutter speed, there's always something that moves faster. Let's see... Hummingbirds beat their wings up to 80 times per second and my shutter speed was set to 1/250 sec. That means it managed to go through about a third of a flap through while my shutter was open. This shot was taken at ECCO at that same butterfly bush as the previous Monarch photo. I guess more creatures than just butterflies like that plant.
