Caption Contest #17

Taking a temporary break from my series of Papua New Guinea posts, I thought we'd snuggly into another Bill of the Birds caption contest.

Please submit your clever caption for this photo (of my friend Dr. Steve Banner using his BWD bino harness in a Scandinavian hot spring) and if your entry is selected as the winner by our panel of judges, you'll receive an autographed copy of the currently out-of-print (and oh-so collectible) best-selling book "Bird Watching For Dummies."

Get it? Got it? Good!

It appears Steve will skinny dip. I tend to chunky dunk.

Steve is wondering why his clothes went birding without him.

Bare-naked birding has become very popular in PNG. Unfortunately, only natives come born with the essential camouflage.

Here Dr. Banner makes quick use of the aqua-blind...before the birds are blinded by his...uh...radiance.

Preparing for a future BirdWatcher's Digest article, Bill invites his PNG companions to help him field test the "waterproof" and "anti-fogging" claims of leading binocular brands.

Birding in PNG will knock more than your socks off!

"Does this bino harness give me man-boobs?"

- ok, I'm done now. I'm sure when you saw this scenario you immediately thought of the caption contest and took the photo! -

"This is the rare elusive Naked Birder. This male individual is seen here bathing and using a tool to search for the even rarer Female Naked Birder. The female has never been documented in the wild. Note the male's solitary lifestyle."

Dr. Banner entered the crowded hot spring not realizing that trunks were not "optional." Now he is watching the crowd disappear over the distant hill.

The new Swarovski binoculars were absolutely superb, though the free thong strap they threw in pinched a bit...

Thank god for waterproof optics... hope those are Leicas!

(Deep narrator voice) From the deep emerges the freshly birthed birdwatcher, complete with bino harness, ready to take on the world. Let's watch as he takes his first steps. Which bird will be his first?

Ted Floyd SAID bare-naked birding was fun - but why are they all leaving me???

Multi-tasking at its best ... birdwatching while bathing!

Keeping his eyes peeled while field testing the "Waterproof Water Bra" proved to be a success, even though the chosen bath place was a favorite spot for dangerous water buffalo.

Hey look! It's Casper the friendly birder.

The in situ laundry testing of the Birding Boxers went well.

Tormented throughout his childhood with the nickname "water ouzel", Dr. Steve Banner now truly identifies with his adult moniker, "The Big Dipper of Birding".

Bill manages to not miss any birding time by finding a creative way to follow his doctor’s order for daily sitz baths.
