R. W. Scott describes how he takes these photos: High Speed Flash Techniques
These photos by R. W. Scott are made with high speed flash.
Thus, they are able to show flying birds with little or no motion blur.
Note: A descriptive name for each photo appears for a few seconds when you let the mouse rest over a thumbnail image.

Warning: This image is HUGE, and crashes some browsers.
I believe that this is the highest resolution image of a
hummingbird anywhere on the world wide web.
