Proving that bird photography is a debilitating condition, he thoughtlessly placed his binoculars in the sand.

Yes, as a matter of fact, I did sit on my McGriddle breakfast sandwiches.

In their first-ever trial-run the brand new Depends-For-Birders failed to live up to their advanced 'billing.'

Isn't he a bit old to still be looking up girl's dresses?

Pants on the ground, pants on the ground, lookin' like a fool with your pants on the ground...

Cyberthrush you took my idea!

Unable to cross the border due to "The Fence" Bill tries for a Mexican lifer with the telephoto lens.


Word verification - pulscoph: more powerful than a spotting scope, it pulls the image of the bird much closer to you.

In the rush to photograph the rare purple-crowned hoosenfeffer, he unfortunately forgot to check for fire ants !

Going to extremes in getting that lifer can lead to overactive bladder.

12 years, equipment costs, travel and a ruined pair of pants... FINALLY, a great shot of a House Sparrow!

Using a combination of drab plumage, shiny objects and ground display, Bill attempts to lure female birders.

After successfully avoiding warbler neck, another unsuspecting birder falls victim to grouse gut.

Birders unite! Let's all get down and dirty!

This is the latest photographic technique for capturing the texture of an ostrich's toe skin.

The touch of the earth really "makes me wanna shout" but control yourself. You can do it.

If my subject was any shorter, I would have to dig a trench.

My body is starting to cramp, I wish this ostrich would get his head out of the ground.

On August 13, 2010 at 5:36 PM Howard said...

And you thought only plumbers had "cracks".

Winning a worm tug-of-war is a bird's rite of passage.

On August 13, 2010 at 5:38 PM Howard said...

Please let's have a little decorum. Oh my gosh, the birds are having a food fight again.

On August 13, 2010 at 5:39 PM Poppyseed said...

Photographing the intricate steps of a mating dance can be soooo fatiguing!

On August 13, 2010 at 6:18 PM Erik said...

Bill attempted to retain some dignity by pretending to take a low angle photograph after tripping and falling flat on his face.

On August 13, 2010 at 6:21 PM Erik said...

After reviewing his photos, Bill realized wicking fabrics were not the best choice for the Bird Boxers

The strange looks Bill received were worth getting a shot of a life mulch, Detritus birdersteponus

An inverse relationship exists between the rarity of a bird and the decorum of the watcher.

Wow. I could be birding, but instead I’m looking at some dude’s butt.

After photographing the rare antpitta, Bill promptly peed his pants due to the excitement.

This is just wrong on so many levels.

As the Palawan Peacock-pheasant rewarded a six-hour stakeout by finally striding into view, Bill overwhelmed his astronaut's diaper.
