Do you know how fast a hummingbirds wings beat?

That's a question for Google.
But, I do know that it will take me 4 days of patiently waiting by the feeder, plus another 1/2 hour to figure out the correct camera setting to capture those wings in stillness.

I wish I could say this was the first attempt.

Ah, and let there be light!


I think there is still to be some tweaking required to get it just perfect.
But they do beat those wings about 50 times per second afterall.
Thank you Google.

But what would be really helpful Mr Google, is if you would also provide camera settings with those statistics.
