When I got my Canon 20D camera, my apartment complex fence seemed a logical beginning for my new photography hobby. After chasing the hummingbird for quite a span, I decided to set up a tripod and wait. An interminable hour later the elusive creature chose to extract the nectar from the flower I was focused on!

The lesson is to focus on the flower and what we’re chasing will come into focus at the right time.

This shot was taken in 2002.
