Amazing image! You even caught a little bug right next to the hummingbird.

And a bug too.
You with F22 and multiple flashes made an icredible image. You must get this question all the time...How did you do it? I respect your trade secrets, however my thirst for knowledge is at a fever pitch.
the shutter speed and multiple flashes. I do not know how to do what you did or even come close. If it is possible give me some tidbits to chew on.
What a fabulous image.
