I finally got a couple of pics of the evasive creatures last summer at 1/250 sec I think. The little wings look like a blur at that shutter speed. That is a nice pic! I like the full size shot.

They are sweet little critters, and yes, they are very fast. Your crop is pretty good, sharp with good colors. Stopping their wings is difficult at best, even using flash.

With patience it is quite easy to get closer to them. And they are not too difficult to attract to your yard.

After a while they get very used to you and might even get too close at times. I was sitting on the porch with a 400mm and they were flying within 3 feet of my face and hovering. Too close for my minimum focus distance. (they must have known that)

You have a nice setup and with getting a little closer you will have some great shots soon. Keep at it!
