A hummingbird’s wings beat 40-80 beats per second with the average being 52. When I photograph hummingbirds, I typically won't shoot below 1/1000 of a second, so I can freeze their wings a little better. Shooting 1/1600 of a second freezes them well.
I tried to have less ISO, so I compromised and shot at 1/800 of a second. Yes, I wish I had used a higher shutter speed because it would have made the shot look better.
