Thanks, John!  Sorry about the poor communications over the last year, but things around here have gotten quite hectic.  Seems as though my wife should start feeling better and better now which, hopefully, will ease things on me.  We've had some beautiful 80 degree weather lately , so I went to the nursery and bought a bunch of cheap flowers, took the feeders down, seeded the flowers with sugar water and sat in the yard taking photos of these little rockets.  I hope you're enjoying your tropic-like weather all us southern Californians dream about.  I also hope all is well with you and yours.

Would like to see the equipment setup to get this shot... perfect exposure time There's no blur on the wings and it's really sharp and vivid.

Look up 'stopping a hummingbirds wings' on google.  It should be the first article up.  I know the fella and his photos are far better than mine... I'm still playing catch-up.

The wings are stopped by high speed strobes, shutter speed does not stop their wings.  This photo is actually taken at 1/15,000 seconds.

It's not bad sitting out in 80 degree weather taking pictures of them either.  We folk here in SoCal feel sorry for you guys this winter.  Whenever we think of the weather back east we laugh like crazy and then head for the beach..

I'm going to be 71 in a couple of weeks!!!!  My perception of time is that it's moving faster and faster.  Being part physicist, I won't get into it too deeply.

" My perception of time is that it's moving faster and faster."  I feel the same. I read someplace, years ago that when we are kids we do not have so many memories. The older we get, the more memories we accumulate hence we "feel" time moving faster and faster.  I don't remember where I read that or when, but it has stuck with me! Of course it may be wrong also!  
And happy birthday early!! It sounds like a good year to have a birthday party!!!  :iconballoonplz::party:

Barb,
This may help:  
Because of the "Uncertainty Principle," It is impossible for a person to find out at the same time both precisely where they are and how fast they are moving. You can substitute age for time in here too as it is based on perception and all perception is uncertain.
Hope this helps!  Seriously, it has been theorized that half our lives take place in two stages the first is between the ages of 10 and 20.  The other half is between 20 and daisy pushing.  Think about how fast time has moved since your were 20, then think about those endless summers between 10 and 20 where a day seemed like a year!

Walt,  
         And then I looked up  "Uncertainty Principle"!  I find if I read and re read and again, not pushing to understand, sometimes I do understand. I remember my Algebra class in high school. Actually I remember vividly my algebra teacher tutoring me after class.  After some time he looked me in the eye and said clear and I shook my head yes. Then he said clear as mud. Well it really was that.  So I hope in my next life, to come back as a mathematician!  
Thank you for the explanation, yes it does help!

That was really just a play on Heisenberg, his principle really only relates to sub-atomic particles... , but that's really just another perception.

Oh, I LOVE hummingbirds, and this is SO worthy of the DD!  Congratulations, and kudos on this spectacular capture: the tiny little "dinosaur feet," every iridescent feather in crisp focus--the dewdrop on the flower is amazing, too!  That we can see the bright orange bloom THROUGH his wing feather is just remarkable! :clap::clap:  So sorry to hear you've been dealing with so much difficulty--may it soon pass!  Beautiful and well-deserved DD! :clap:

Thanks, it's not a dewdrop it's the seeded sugar water to get these fast little birds to stay in one place long enough to focus.

I have a small piece of property in CA, but we have about 10-15 hummers that call it home.  All are used to me and will hand feed.  By spring we'll have about 65 of the little rockets.  Last year I used 75# of sugar, this year I'm sure I'll use more.  I started out with two birds.

No, there was some photoshop work, but, basically, it's a hummingbird against a green background.  Four strobes were used for this picture.
