I couldn't resist grabbing a couple for some of our regulars here ... and of course I got one for myself, too! Razz In addition to those below, I saw several that would fit bugman, a few that might suit alienjeff and many others that might be adopted by regulars here. There are over 1600 tux's on the parent site!

Hi Eric,

I think that must be the Ruby-throated Hummingbird (Archilochus colubris). For such a small bird it has an enormous endurance, flying non-stop across the Gulf of Mexico to seasonally populate eastern-central North America and on into Canada. An amazing feat for such a tiny creature.
Quote:
During hovering, ruby-throated hummingbird wings beat 55x/sec, 61x/sec when moving backwards, and at least 75x/sec when moving forward.

Hi Fossil,

Yup...you are correct and a male to boot. I'm a backyard birder and I love to see the hummers come back every year. The travelings of a hummer are quite amazing no doubt

I am still learning this camera so I hope to get a pic with the wing beats frozen in a frame...well it's another project anyway along with finding the nest to snap a pic...that's harder than it seems as I've tried for several years and no luck yet.

Best,
Eric

The built-in flash will stop the wing motion. If you don't want to use the flash, set the mode dial to A (for aperture priority), the ASA to the highest number (6400 if I remember right) and the aperture for wide open (the smallest aperture number the lens will allow.) Those settings will give you the highest electronic shutter speed possible for the light conditions. Try to arrange the scene so the bird is brightly lit against a dark background, and use the spot meter AE setting.

I don't think you are likely tto get frozen wing movement with any normal flash. The duration of the flash cycle is too long. As far as I know, you can only get that with special high-speed flash equipment which is quite exepnsive. I'm a long-time photographer, so I understand your quest -I've stalked birds for months before getting the shot I was after.

@Eric,
I'll look forward to some more pictures. Finding a Hummer's nest is a bit like the proverbial 'needle', etc. Good luck!

@amigo.
It is possible to freeze motion using normal amateur flash equipment. The usual on-flash camera unit usually isn't very powerful. Providing you can use an off-camera flash via either an extension lead or a plug-in remote sensor, it is possible to freeze movement. The caveat is to use a powerful flash unit - preferably using two units to balance the light and fill in the shadows. I've used Mecablitz, Metz, Vivitar. Assuming a variable flash power setting, use a smaller percentage of power output via a larger f-number or manual output, which equates to higher flash speed than the usual 1000th+ sec. As the light's power falls of by the square of the distance, get in close.
Using digital cameras is a whole new ballgame - especially as many have a 'pre-flash' mode which will trigger any external sensors prematurely. I still prefer my old manual Nikons.
Have a look around for 70's and 80's 'low-tech'. Some of the non-dedicated (to camera) older flash units can be picked up for a song. The smaller, easily transported, Vivitar 285's have served me well in the past.
Nowadays, I like close-up and macro shots of various local wild plants - they are less likely to run/fly away from me! Laughing
