I was not prepared when this small sunbird came to feed on the nectar of this flower that I was photographing.

A number of the shots had blurry images of this restless creature. My focusing was single point and I did not have time to bother about what aperture I had set.

Photographing birds is not a touch-and-go affair. One needs to lie in wait and train one's camera and lens at the position that a bird is likely to appear. One has to have the patience and stake out these creatures to get satisfactory shots.

I am not happy with these shots because the sharpness was less than desirable. Nevertheless these were good records of a chance encounter with this particular sunbird.
