This week's motif is SHORT LENS CAPTURES - please post your photos here of wild birds captured with a 300 mm or shorter focal length.
The Sigmonster Tamer again suggested this week's motif.
Posting is voluntary, and if your bird pic doesn't fit the week's motif, you can post these as usual in the Bird Photos section. Only mods can open new motif threads, but all members can post and even guests can view the posts. Multiple posts are allowed too.
Let's post shooting info and standardize our presentation (see format of my first post) so viewers will know how the photo was taken:

wow Reyno, amazing! I've seen a few Purple Heron get spooked as I drove by the fields of Candaba. Seeing one burst out right beside you can make you reel back for a split second. The next split second I'm vainly trying to both stop the car and whip out the camera. Obviously to no avail. I'd love to visit Reynoland one day!
