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.

Goldfinch 5/8/97 19,024
Female Ruby Throated Hummingbird - Too big for most screens, but you can "pan" the image. Check the "eyelashes" and the tailfeathers. See note below for a similar image by another photographer. 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. 5/8/97 578,050
Same Hummingbird at smaller resolution to fit most screens. 05/20/97 26,564
Male Bluejay 5/8/97 33,257
Tufted Titmouse 5/8/97 19,857
