    Holy Crap, how did that happen?

    Some of you know that I recently had surgery and unable to hold a camera. Tripod with the Manfrotto 322 head and a remote was my only saving grace to feed my monkey.

    I started out by shooting Hummingbirds here, which lead to this set and eventually to this thread. (YES, that was all unashamed self promotion)

    Anyway, one of my Hummers got picked as the Front Page photo on this blog site that I recently registered on. A friend of a friend sorta thing got me to it. I had made a couple of posts and almost forgot about it. Thought to myself, Hey post the birds. I started getting several comments and didn't have a clue what the hell they were on about. So I had a look at the front page. Holy Crap, how did that happen?

    Well, that was my BIG day. I was extremely chuffed.

    Mods, if the image needs to be a link, let me know.

    Awesome Possum!!!

    So out of curiosity, what sort of shutter speed does it take to freeze a hummingbird's wings?
