What are the chances?

My next door neighbor has a humming bird feeder hanging off his Direct TV dish. I've warned Virgil that Direct TV will charge him $54 if they have to realign his dish.

Sunday afternoon I was watching the Seahawks game when a bird darted by my patio door. Sure enough - a humming bird! Now I've never considered myself a nature photographer. But I decided to try to shoot this birdie.

I grabbed my Fuji FinePix S100fs, and carefully sliding my door and screen open, fired off three frames. The bright sunlight washed out my focus screen, so I was shooting almost blind. And I hadn't taken time to check the camera settings.

So I was completely gobsmacked when I downloaded the memory card and discovered this exposure!
