I've been following a particularly interesting photographer on Flickr now for awhile, and the images he posts seem just unreal. But they're not!

Chickadee In Flight

They're incredible images of birds in flight, captured with a special camera set-up. While the photos look like paintings, they are indeed photos. You'll be amazed to see some of the movements of birds Gerry Sibell has been able to immobilize -- from hummingbirds battling wasps to goldfinches having mid-air standoffs.
