In A Burst

Challenge #19 in the Technology Enabling Art series. Hosted by ProfHankD.
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).
