I moved my hummingbird feeder to the corner of the porch this afternoon. I was hoping for some 'red colors', but maybe next time.

No amount of shutter speed can freeze a hummingbird's wings - high-speed flash is the only thing that will do it.

No flash on this one, but I have used flash and sometimes a silver or gold reflector in the past.
