What a great looking hummingbird.Nice shot too. That blue is amazing. So if this wasn't 'multi-flash' am i right to assume it was just a single flash? Doesn't mention flash in the shooting data but it looks like flash was used. Thanks
Thanks for looking,

Yes, I should have said that, one on camera flash.

E.J., what a jewel of a hummer, love the nicely swept back wings, flower on the diagonal (with interesting water drops), and the earnest feeding behavior - beautiful image.
