"One-In-A-Million Shot"

As I continue playing catch-up after an extended blog-break, I bring you a photo from National Wildlife Magazine's 2006 reader photo contest:

From the pic's caption:

“This was a one-in-a-million shot,” says [Steve]Irving, who photographed a male calliope hummingbird (left) attempting to chase a female rufous hummingbird away from a feeding flower. The retired business owner made the digital image using a 70-200mm zoom lens while attending a photography workshop in British Columbia last year. “I’ve taken many photos of fighting hummingbirds,” he says. “Usually all I get is wings or a blur, or nothing at all.”
