Madera Canyon, AZ. Hummingbirds are small [4-in (10-cm long)] and move fast [about 44 ft/sec (13 m/sec)]. Their wings move at about 60 to 70 beats per second. So catching one in the air like this is difficult. Canon 7D II, Canon 600 mm f/4 with Canon 1.4 Extender, No Flash. Exposure: 1/2500 sec, f/6.3, ISO 1250, EV = 0.
