This is the one of several photos I shot one morning in New Hampshire of a hummingbird that came back time and time again to feed at these and other near by flowers. I'd never been able to get a good shot of one since they usually only stick around for 5 or 10 seconds at a time, so it was a real treat that I could take tons of photos of this one. To give an idea of how fast the wings are is that the photo was taken at 1/500th of a second, and yet they are still a little blurry (I took others at faster speeds).

Taken with my Nikon D5000; f/5, 1/500th sec, ISO-900
