I took this photo on May 21, 2011. This is was my first photo that really got any attention, and it was pretty much all luck. It was featured on Flickr's Explore page, and then someone posted it on Tumblr., and then went through a couple hundred re-Tumbles (or whatever they're called on that site). I was holding the hummingbird that we fished out of the lake and just happened to have the camera nearby and snapped one frame.
The full story behind this poor bird can be found on my Flickr. While you're there, take a look at some of the other photos from around that time. When I look through those, I think, "I can't believe I thought that looked good." Its always good to see where you came from.
