Artist's Description

I have learned that these tiny birds flap their wings up to 78 times per second. I have always wanted to capture one of these birds (that’s capture a photo) with it’s wings stopped. To accomplish this I needed cooperation from the light source, an ability to raise the ISO with my camera, and a good subject (plus some luck). These variables came together a couple of days ago and I am pleased to share this shot with you. Processed with Photomatix software, this shot came after hours and hours of watching and waiting. Taken with my Canon 60D and my Canon 70-200 lens. Taken at my cottage on Honeoye Lake in Western New York.
