Hummingbird in Flight, Jaffray, BC, Canada by Dawnelle Salant

I spent 2 days sitting on the dock at the lake in hopes of catching a hummingbird in flight. They were everywhere that day, zipping and zooming past my head, but none were cooperating to give me the shot I wanted. I had captured birds of prey in flight before, but never the elusive and speedy hummingbird. I took over 2000 photos, most of them with a shutter speed of 1/5000 of a second. When I downloaded the photos, most were blurry, too far away or had part of the bird cut off. When I came across this one, I let out a happy shout. My patience was finally rewarded with an in flight shot of a hummingbird!
