Trusting the release

The bird was preening itself in this magnificent lighting but would not stay still. I held it in focus for several minutes.  
Finally, I said a prayer and simply trusted to release the shutter. 
That was the result. It’s a similar story with my best photographs. I suppose that if I deserve any credit it’s for the willingness to pick up the camera and leave the house. 
The Universe takes care of the rest.
