While shooting the California Tiger Lily, this little critter made an appearance. I had been told by the staff of the Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden (where this was taken) that the Hummingbirds liked the Tiger Lily, so I was sitting quietly about 15 feet away with the 300mm lens focused.

When s/he showed up, I started hitting the shutter!

  • No remote. Handheld with my elbows resting on my knees and waiting . . .

    THANK YOU for your great comments!
