Elusive hummingbird

It took me quite a few tries to get a picture of this hummingbird. It would show up outside the window, feed on the plant outside the window, and disappear by the time I managed to grab my camera. After lots of near misses, I finally got this photo. I was not an expert on photography by any means so there was certainly some luck that went into this photo. I like how the near wing of the hummingbird is sharp while there is just a little motion blur in the far wing. It’s a good thing I got this photo because my luck in getting photos of hummingbirds since then has been quite bad, it seems like every time I see one, my camera is either not nearby or has the wrong lens on it.
