Used a technique new to me called Strobe Motion to get this picture.

Very cool pic! Did it scare the Hummer away?
How does "Strobe Motion" work?

RE: Flight of the hummingbird

As you can see from the picture the bird kept going towards the feeder, did not scare the bird in the least bit.
With strobe motion what happens is this: the camera shutter stays open for a long time (1/4 second, in the above picture) while the shutter is open the flash fires multiple times, exposing the image. Since the camera is set to underexpose the image it only gets enough light when the flash fires, thus getting the "strobe motion"
