Challenge has finished
This one's pretty ambiguous - was the shot taken with your longest lens? Was it one that was difficult or a longshot that you didn't think you could catch? Leave this one open to your imagination, just pay attention to the capture date rule.

'Piwakawaka' New Zealand Fantail. Didn't think I'd manage to get a decent shot of this hyperactive bird in dark, dense woodland. Just had to click away when he stayed still for a second.
