Missed It by THAT much, Part 1

Challenge #10 in the Telling the Story series. Hosted by CharlesB58.
Challenge has finished
Everybody has photos where they juuuust missed the perfect moment. A blink that spoils a portrait. Someone turns away right as the shutter is tripped. A capture made just after the peak of action. Sometimes, however, these "failures" can be more interesting than the "keepers". Show us your "just missed" shots that you find are more interesting than if you'd "nailed it" as you originally intended. Please read and follow the additional rules. Thanks

As I waited for the little girl on the left to pick up the flowers, literally, out of nowhere the flowers disappeared. I missed the "scoop" but love the moment...
