I've never seen shutter speed displayed quite like what's shown here: "3334444/100000000" Is that a misprint or am I not understanding it?

Thank you everyone for the wonderful comments. I so appreciate all of your kind words. TC it has been so long ago that I took this picture, I am not sure why it is displaying "3334444/100000000". If you notice though...the image was a 5 image HDR picture so I am thinking the odd shutter speed is a result of combining all the pictures together.
