Caption contest ending Apr 1 (NZT)
Posted By: Kiwizinho, 03-24-2023, 12:06 PM

The contest will run from now until Saturday 1 April, 12pm, NZT.

NB: VOTE ("like") FOR SOMEONE WHETHER OR NOT YOU ARE AN ENTRANT....!!

Submissions can be in any written form (no video or audio files) — caption, limerick, motivational, poem or prose — whatever inspires you to describe the photo or catch attention. Submit by replying to the thread. Contestants may submit more than one entry but it must be in a separate post. Important: Even if you do not submit an entry, please “like” any posts you feel deserve it as this is how the winner is chosen. And if you DO submit an entry, please also find an entry that you like from among your competitors' efforts and "like" that one as well.

The "thread starter" is the moderator and must post an original photo at the start of the thread. In case of a tie the moderator will choose one to break the tie. After determination of the contest's winner, that winner will be notified ASAP after by the current Thread Starter/Contest Host and will become responsible for posting the next original work to be captioned.

Enter often, vote more often. and most important: Have fun!

OK, that's the high jump done. Now watch me clean up at the "how low can you go?" limbo stick.

They told me horses (and people) have steeplechase courses with water puddles right after obstacles. I wish they build the same for me. So much more fun.

Some good captions. Keep them coming, and don't forget to vote. Just one more day. I've got a few ideas for captions myself, but won't post until after the contest closes as I don't want to influence the result.

With a tie between K2 to K50 and UncleVanya, I've had to pick a winner, and I've gone with K2 to K50.

Now that the contest is closed, I'll mention some other possible captions

Who says Pentax AF can't cope with fast moving objects?

Since the dog had chased all the birds away BIF was no longer available option, so a new one DIF had to substitute.

In New Zealand, our national bird is endangered and flightless, so the only way to capture one in flight involves throwing it off a building, which will land you in jail. Fortunately dogs have somewhat better flight characteristics.
