Challenge has finished
Show off your best picture of a bird (or birds) in its natural environment. Try to be as original as possible - perhaps an unusual crop on the feet, or a wide-angle habitat shot where the bird is only a small (but integral) component of the overall picture. Please also include the species name and approximate location.
