Don't let their size fool you. Hummingbirds have stamina and fly very fast. In fact, they have been clocked at 30mph when flying directly.
Their migration can span hundreds or even thousands of miles with their wings flapping a minimum of 70 times per second.
Are you starting to get a feel for how difficult it may be to capture a shot that with clarity and detail? Oh yes, in a dive that wing speed can almost triple.This also may help you understand why they have to feed so frequently and also why they look for sweet nectar and sugar water.
