Challenge has finished
This challenge is for compact cameras only, and specifically those with a long zoom. We're looking for those long distance shots you could only have captured with a big telephoto, the catch being it's got to be a compact camera's built in big zoom. We're looking for shots with lots of 'X', 20X, 24X, whatever you've got, give it your best.

Taken hand-held in daylight, no flash, with Panasonic FZ18 at maximum zoom. The parrot was eating a pinecone very delicately with one foot (hand?) while holding onto the tree with the other. The lighting was difficult - pointing up into the tree against the light - as often happens with shots of birds, but the cam seemed to cope OK with just a bit of colour fringing at the edges.
