at Feeder
   

Allen's hummingbird at feeder
 

This high-speed flash photograph is fast enough to stop this Allen's Hummingbird's wings, which beat about 80 times per second. The beak is parted, revealing the slender tongue drinking from the feeder. The iridescent green sheen of the bird's feathers is also revealed by the flash.

 

Kodachrome film,
high-speed flash, macro lens
