A very good thing about the image is you will always have the memory now of the event.

Having a camera handy, but not to close to the window, was a valuable lesson. Took this with my cell phone, and sure enough, he flew when I picked up the SLR on the table!

I usually have my DSLR handy where I can grab it rather quickly. Here's an unfortunate example. We had a hummingbird nest in a tree in our backyard. A hawk spotted the nest, and in one fell swoop, took the nest and rested it on my tripod and had his meal (I had unintentionally left the empty tripod in the backyard). Saddened at these events, but it was just nature taking its course. I was shooting through a sliding glass patio door.
