    I did NOT take this photo. But, dammit, I had to share it.

    If it took millions of thrown baseballs before someone finally hit a bird mid-flight, then this photo deserves a prize for capturing something thats gotta be one-in-a-million.

    Wuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut? Wow. I'm not sure whether to applaude the photographer or be frightened by his reflexes and accuse him of being inhuman. Either way, that is true dedication to photography. Wow.

    I really think this should be at least page 2 news, if not page 1.


    It really is hard to tell the difference between number one and number two with birds.

    In the TMI department,

    Birds have only one exit for that kind of things which means it's both #1 and #2. =p

    That's because they release everything at once. Their poo is their pee, and vice versa. I could explain further, but I'll leave it at that ;)

    Funny picture.

    I wonder how long it took the photographer to capture that action?

    I like to think the photographer was just taking a picture of the bird, then the bird decided to defecate when he hit the shutter button.

    Maybe.

    However, I think that it was a deliberate shot. Or possibly from a series of shots. :)

    I dont want to be the lame guy that shouts photoshop at everything he sees just beacause i'm feeling negative.

    At first I was amazed, but looking closely, the poo is extremely white, when bird poo on my car it doesn't look this white, it's greenish with nasty black dots. I've also seen brown bird poo, never this toothpaste white.

    Also, the background seems odd, maybe this is a display bird in a museum ? It's not in the wild for sure.

    I have my doubts, but I want it to be real cuz its freaking awesome, so please convince me !

    Great catch on this photo. I actually grabbed a similar shot as well

    [​IMG]

    if the image doesn't show up, here is the link. I saw this hawk on the side of the road and pulled off and slowly pulled up and shot through the passenger side window. All of a sudden I get the squirt!

    Everyone's a critic.

    Looks like the bird decided to offer its own comments & criticism on the photographer: "That's not my good side!"
