    Dan,

    That may be the single BEST hummer shot I've ever seen --- PHENOMENAL detail and perfect composition!

    Thanks for the compliments.
    Regarding the blog post, in my experience, (with Canon flashes), to get the best results you can't mix flash models. I use six Canon 430 flashes. When I throw a 580 into the mix the flash duration and instant of firing is not in sinc with the other flashes and can cause ghosting.
    Here is a 100% crop from the above photo.
