Chance Encounter



On Saturday when I as at the Boyce Thompson Arboretum, I encountered this hummingbird along one of the trails. I didn’t think there was any chance of catching him with the camera so I must admit I was surprised when I downloaded photos. Not bad for a chance encounter.

Great photo. You and Julie, who posted a hummingbird in flight last week on Scottsdale Daily Photo, are making the extraordinarily difficult look easy.

What a surprise that must have been to see this little beauty. Great shot.

Great shot. From my (beginner)experience, the best photo scene always appears suddenly. You can look and wait for the scene for an hour and then bum! you catch it with the unexpected turn of the head.
