Too close, not interesting

Do you recognize the feeling? You're trying to click a bird 15 meters away. You're busy getting the nicely feathered friend in focus, when all of a sudden it starts walking towards you, right out of the frame. (This is not for BIGMA-fellows) Just too close to be in focus. It sits on your toes and rests there.

I had it (the feeling) sometimes, and couldn't help myself laughing when I saw this picture.

Okay, it's not a bird, but the feeling of the photographers cannot be too different from mine!

So, why do I laugh at it?

Because "theirs" is longer than "mine". And this time, I am *not* jealous!
