well it looks like it was 1/80. i was using the P mode.
i treid the shutter priority mode,but it turned out really dark,and didnt want to work with the flash.
my goal is to stop the wings,and that means a shutter speed way higher than these.
i think i need off camera light or flash

would be interesting to know, what shutterspeed you need to freeze their wings. I guess 1/1000

edit: i was wrong .. take a look at this: http://www.flickr.com/​photos/johnmphoto/4261​72782 (external link) ... this was shot at 1/2000.

Recently purchased the T2i to learn about HD video and as a backup camera. Purchased it through Canon Loyalty Program... best bang for the buck that's for sure.

Shot the below with the T2i and 17-40 f4. Upper right you can see Coney Island and the Parachute tower. The image is just a screen shot from my monitor so it's not as sharp as a converted jpeg.

Should be easy to stop the wings.
Dragons only do 35 beats per second
Honeybee 130 ps
House fly 170 ps
Mosquuito 600 ps
the easy ones are Butterfly, only 10 ps
just some facts you may find of interest!

Stoped these with 1/3200 sec
iso 800 f/5.6 you could try and work it from this.

Let the dog out the back door last evening and noticed some really deep colors in the sky. Much deeper than normal. There were some thunderstorms that came through about 30 minutes prior, so I wonder if that had anything to do with it.

You would think that by my third daughter's first birthday I would learn that red icing stains!:oops: Taken with the flash I think I finally learned to use it. The ones without the flash came out very very oarangey and blurry. The room has a very warm color to it and really comes through without the flash.

Second one is a flower on the side of the house. I didn't see the bee untill I downloaded them guess I just got lucky.

Both were with my favorite lens the nifty fifty. I seldom use anything else.

Love all the bird shots. I can never seem to get them either close enough or still enough.

Ceder trees are a perfect background

I have the same problem with the bird feeder....under shade and just can't get the light for the speed I need. I saw you had ISO @ 400. You could crank that up, but probably still not get to where you need to be. Looks like your gonna have to spend some more money....Darn that bird photography....Lets see, I need (minimum) a 600mm lens, an external flash, a better beamer, a wimberly gimbal head......A second mortgage on the house should cover it!! ;)

Wow...Your place is beautiful. Yes lots of shade, but I could overlook that one discrepancy! :D
