Small Miracles - stock photo

I pulled up the driveway of one of my favorite houses for bird photography. I didn't even get out of my vehicle yet, when I spotted this northern mockingbird, about 12 feet away. I didn't have my camera ready. No card in the camera, the wrong lens on the camera and just plain not ready. I wasn't expecting anything so fast. So as I pull it all together, I'm sorta watching him, as he watches me back. But he doesn't move... at all. OK... now I'm ready, but at the wrong angle in the car. He's dead on, through the windshield. Thinking he's going to fly away any second, I lean out the window and shoot on an angle with my 300mm lens. Awkward! I shoot a few rounds, Then decide to back up and angle the car over to the right for a better angle... and still he doesn't move. Now you people out there... that photograph know that you have maybe 3-5 seconds if you're lucky before the bird is gone. Not this bird. Do you know how long he stayed in this spot as I shot a zillion pictures of him? FORTY SEVEN MINUTES IN THIS SPOT! That is unheard of, for a little bird to be that still for that long, with a big long lens pointed at him. I was astonished. I changed lenses, cameras, backgrounds by changing position, while still seated in the driver's seat. It was definitely a small miracle to me.
