This group is all about Themed Photography Challenges

Open Wide! (Birds Only) READ DESCRIPTION

This challenge closed over 3 years ago.

The Challenge

A Photo of a bird with an open mouth, the wider the better. If in doubt, see example photo.

What we want

  1. BIRDS with wide open mouth/beak/bill (see example photo)
  2. Birds with WIDE OPEN mouth/beak/bill. (see example photo)
  3. Photographs only
  4. A PHOTO of a bird with a wide open mouth.

What we do NOT want

  1. Birds with closed beaks
  2. Birds holding stuff in their beak, if they can hold something there, technically their beak is trying to close as much as possible, rather than being truly “open”. See example image.

  4. Any form of insect/bug/creepy crawly flying or otherwise
  5. Snakes, reptiles, any other form of life that is not a bird
  6. Helicopters or other “cute” usage of the word bird.
  7. Anything that is not safe for work
  8. Anything that is not a photograph (please note that works that do not LOOK like a photograph, even if they started life as one will not be accepted, this is the photography not the photoshop group)
