Challenge has finished
Post an image that you know was just mostly luck. Perhaps you were just in the right place at the right time, perhaps it was a quick shot and you did not have the settings correct, yet it still turned out great, or maybe the shutter speed was to low and you had blur but it turned out great etc.. Be honest here please.

Actually, I was the lucky one to catch this shot. This Tern was struggling with this wiggling minnow and almost hit the foot bridge where I was walking through. I quickly put the viewfinder in my eye Aimed pressed the AF ON and Shutter release buttons, fired 3 frames and it was gone. It happened in less than a second and the 2nd frame was the only one that was in focus...
