SO - - We use "BIF" for "birds in flight." Should we introduce "BS" for images such as you've posted?

It's not my term but it's a useful one - sometimes you're on the ground and the bird is way up there and there's not much you can do about it. I thought I first saw the expression in "Secrets of Digital Bird Photography" but I failed to find it in a quick scan.

Anyway, here's another one, from the same location as the Peregrine:

From a motorboat outing into the 10,000 Islands in the Everglades. It was a very windy, overcast day so wildlife was scarce and difficult to focus. Kingfisher and spoonbills with a visiting odd ball. 600mm significant crop.

Oops. Caught this stork before it finished sprucing up for its picture. Perhaps it should have tucked its head under a wing.

Wonderful photo, but was this published without your permission?

Frustrating isn't it? You get decently close, but the angle isn't great. At least you got nice detailed shots!

I have an area by me where last year a few eagles sometimes would hang out during the winter and early spring. They perched in trees along the edge of the lake, and where I'm hiking I am some 10 yards above lake's edge, so my angle shooting up at them is only maybe 15 degrees or so. I'm still about 40-50 yards away, and the branches are difficult to navigate, but one can't ask for everything...

This is a 60% crop...

Speaking on behalf of the Meadowlark (without its permission), I think it deserves a more respectful term than "BS".
