It’s generally true that the more megapixels your camera has, the better your photos will be. This fun shot of a Bushtit examining its reflection shows that timing, composition, and a bit of luck can be just as important.
Tony Britton owns a mobile personal training and martial arts business in Santa Cruz, California. In April 2005, he was walking through a parking lot on his way to teach an exercise class when he noticed a female Bushtit flapping around a car’s mirror. He grabbed his Olympus C-720 Ultra Zoom, a three-megapixel point-and-shoot, to try for a photo.
