Challenge has finished
Sometimes, things are just happening too fast to think about. You roughly point your camera and hold down the shutter button to capture a burst of images at multiple frames per second. It's photographic "spray and pray," enabled by fast modern sensors and electronics. Later, you pick the best shot -- and enter it in this challenge.

I took a hundred pictures from a lounge chair, 5 meters from the bird feeder, most of the one shot at a time. When I changed to high-speed sequence shutter, I got this shot of a bird turning to leave the feeder--in quite a hurry (as they always are).
