The Challenge

This is another “add the date and please be honest” challenge. Works without dates will be removed without warning. Works MUST be taken in October 2012. The challenge has been extended as even I did not find a bird that I could photograph until 6th October, they have definitely been hiding over here.

We want NEW photos taken in October 2012. Taken in, not uploaded in. Preferably you will see this, go outside now, or when it’s light, take a photo of a bird and upload it immediately. Straight from camera would be awesome.

The challenge is about new works NEW NEW NEW works so new in fact that I have not seen a bird since the conception of the challenge… update: ok I found one almost 5 days later!! oh and it’s dark now. I’ll find a pigeon or something tomorrow. (Edit Not so new that the date does not yet exist as there have been a couple in the mod queue that appeared to have come from the future.)


Must be a REAL bird not a toy etc
Must be alive – no dead birds, cooked birds etc etc. No violence towards birds.
Must be a PHOTOGRAPH (pref. straight from camera…)
MUST MUST BE taken in October 2012 and MUST be dated.
Must be an actual bird, not a ladybird, not a bird of paradise flower, not a woman, not a whirlybird (helicopter) or any other interpretation of the word. Seriously.

Can be wild, a pet, in your garden, in your local park/pond/street, can be captive in a zoo or local visitors farm/petting zoo or birdpark.

Just go out, see a bird and take a photo.

Not many people in this world can say that in 7 days (yes! You have 7 days for this challenge) they will not see one single bird. If you are one of those people, sorry, please enter another challenge, there should be one that you can enter soon! :-P

Oh any kind of bird is ok for this challenge but but MUST be dated or removed.

No bugs
If it does not look like a photo, even if it started life as a photo it will be removed.
