This is a great thread. I think you would probably all enjoy a facebook group "crap bird photography" created specifically to celebrate those not quite there shots :)

Interesting! Thanks!

This had all the potential....but bad light killed it :(
Into the glare, flat light...it just didn't work...what a wasted opportunity !

Whatever bad day I was having, it doesn't match up to what the fish experienced....be thankful for small mercies.

That would be a good shot for me, <sob> :-(:-(

This bird was too far away for the shot to come out well - it is already cropped to smithereens - but I was delighted to see it as it is only the second Gray Catbird ever to be seen in Britain.
