Challenge has finished
Sometimes you focus your lens on one thing but end up with an image of something entirely unexpected. It may be due to an incorrect setting (e.g. mis-focused) or something happening within the frame that you couldn't anticipate (e.g. a new element entered the frame). For this challenge, describe the shot you had intended and explain how the resulting image differs. This is not about how the subject suddenly moved or changed (e.g. the subject made a funny face at you), but how something totally fortuitous occurred. Important, you MUST provide an explanation or be disqualified (see additions rules).

I was panning my camera taking continuous shots following a formation of the Blue Angels. My lens will sometimes lock focus and require a reboot before AF works again. On this shot, the focus locked and Blue Angels flew far enough away to drop out of focus. At the same time a bird flew into the frame at the locked focus distance. The previous picture from this continuous series has the Angels in focus with the blurred bird flying into the frame, but this one came out a lot better.
