Well it looked quite professional.  (Andre Agassi would be proud.  LOL!)  I 
also find luck is a factor with my "best shots" too.  One of my favorites 
is a photo of Iris versicolor that I snapped right as a bumblebee was 
landing on it.  It's one of my all time faves, and there was no way I could 
have planned it!
