3. Any stories about the shot/explain the subject
matter or how you took the shot.
I had been trying to get a in-flight shot of a hummingbird for days...
all i did was sit abt 2 meters from the feeder.. and had my camera
Set to Continuous Focus and had my finger on the trigger...lol i over
heated my camera 3 times lucky its has a warning before it does any

4. How you got into photography.
Hmm well it started way back when i was 16. i really wanted to take
as a subject at school but we couldn't afford the equipment so until i
turned 26
i had just shot family outings and what not then i moved to New Mexico
from Australia
to help run a Reptile/Pet store i got my first digital camera started
taking shot of
all the snakes and lizards.. then moved to Canada that's when i got my
camera with
more advanced features.. I love animals so photography just goes hand
in hand with
loving nature particularly bird watching which i like to do

5. What is your ultimate dream and/or realistic goals
with photography?
Hmm hard one?? Well i have already sold a Photo to a company in
British Columbia "B.C. Experience" they have used it on their
touch screens (info computer screens) it would be nice to sell
more but to be realistic i doubt it...lol

Since nobody's commented yet, I thought I'd just say that this is an amazing shot, and it definitely took dedication to get it. The fact that the shutter speed was 1/1000th of a second, and the wings are still blurred, is amazing. The sharp focus on the bird's body and head is great, and the almost angelic quality of the wings and the blurred background only add to the beauty of the picture.
