First shot was lucky
I drove to the San Diego Botanical Garden today and as I got out of my car, this was the first thing I spotted.
No time for setting the camera, just to shoot. A second later the Hummingbird was gone.

Nikon D300 ,Tamron SP AF 180mm f/3.5 Di Macro
1/500s f/8.0 at 180.0mm iso200 full exif
