I spent a few hours at the Botanical Gardens in Phoenix, AZ and took over 400 shots, mainly of hummingbirds. Only a handful turned out, Probably due to the cheap ass lens I used to take it.

I obsessively try to capture "the perfect" hummingbird photo. This is pretty darn close! I'm so encouraged that IF I ever get one good enough to enter into a challenge -- the good ones are still getting great scores. Congratulations on this one. And I think: 1 out of every 400 sounds about right :) But if they end up turning out like this -- it is well worth the bad ones :) CONGRATULATIONS!
