Caption Contest #25!

It's been a while since we had a good old-fashioned caption contest here at Bill of the Birds. In fact it's been WAY TOO LONG! So here goes...

My good buddy and New River Birding & Nature Festival co-founder Geoff Heeter is using some impressive binoculars in this image.

Almost as impressive is your opportunity to submit a clever caption for this photograph and garner a fabulous prize if your caption is chose as the winning entry. The prize is a personally autographed copy of The New Birder’s Guide written by yours truly.

Here are the rules:

1.     Use the Comments section of this blog (below) to create and enter your caption.
2.     Make sure there’s a way for our panel of esteemed judges to identify and contact you by including your Blogger name, non-linkable e-mail address, Google+ or Twitter handle, etc.
3.     Get your entry (or entries, there’s no limit other than your time and imagination) in by May 22, 2014.
4.     Entries must be in English or in one of the other identifiable languages of Planet Earth (no Klingon or High Valyrian entries please).
5.     Encourage your friends, birding pals, social media contacts, and frenemies to enter.
6.     Sit back, enjoy the entries from others less clever than you
7.     Wait for the announcement of your BOTB Caption Contest victory!

Thanks for playing and let’s be careful out there.

Although the invite specifically said "bare-naked birding", Geoff didn't feel comfortable unless he brought along ceratin..."enhancements."

Our new 'Pinocchio' binoculars will let your birding friends know when you are....exaggerating... about that ivory-billed in the backyard.

As my great grandpappy would say, "Walk softly and carry some big honkin' binoculars."

Optics for all your middle-aged guy needs!

Looks like Geoff stores his Viagra in his optics case.

if I put them down, the little neck cord severs my head, so I just keep scanning the skies....

Hey, Bill, I can see your house from here!

OK, scan north until you hit Michigan, look for third jack pine from the left, halfway up the tree, eight o'clock, sitting on skinny branch against the sky, yellow breast, black streaking, split white eye ring..........
