Wow, nice!
I noticed the dark background, did you take them at night?

RE: A Ruby Throated Hummingbird

The reason the background is black is because in order to freeze the wings I have to use a flash, then deliberately underexpose the photograph so that the only light available for the photo is the flash. This makes the background black.

RE: A Ruby Throated Hummingbird

What camera did you use for these photos? They are great!

RE: A Ruby Throated Hummingbird

Camera used was a nikon D2x with a 200mm lens and a Nikon SB-800 flash.
