I'm really not into action photography but I'm just curious about this image because of the camera settings. Capturing a hummingbird @1/199 speed @ F11 with ISO100? This must be a joke! :)

There is if you use a flash in the dark - the shutter might be open for 1/199th second, but the flash might only be on for, around 1/8000th.....

Gregg had used the same technique for capturing this image:
