You can always count on the 20D to nail the shot!

Why the sudden plethora of long-necked birds?
And why couldn't a different camera have got a similar (if not better) shot?

I don't shoot all long-necked birds .... just the ones with spikes
through their throats.

Don't know. I've never seen shots of long-necked birds with spikes
thorugh their throats taken with better cameras.

I don't think so, likely for the same reason nobody is doing anything
about the shrapnel lodged in my neck - it causes no additional harm to
leave it alone, but is likely very harmful to remove it.

No.

There are two options that have been considered.

1. Leave the bird alone and let nature take it's course. The spike
doesn't seem to bother the bird at all, and it should eventually work
it's way out on it's own.

2. Try to capture the bird and remove the spike. This would prove
quite difficult and would probably traumatize the bird as well as
possibly seriously wounding it further in the attempt. How would one
catch a wild bird, anyway? I suppose they'd have to shoot it with a
tranquilizer gun, but then they'd have to hope the bird didn't fly up
in a tree where it could fall to it's death or where it would be
difficult to retrieve.

I suppose if I had the time and lotsa little fish, I could eventually
train Spike to come to me like I did Harry the Hawk.

How about a shortneck bird with a starfish leg through its throat, same
camera, better lens?

Jim

how did you put the spike through its throat????


They both did it to themselves:
The heron probably mistook the shiny nail as a fish.
The seagull was just in too much of a hurry to eat.

I respectfully submit that it's the person behind the camera who nailed
it as opposed to the camera. Well done and thanks for sharing. I guess
I'm going to have to get up early some morning and sit out on the dock
to catch with resident Great Blue Heron with the D200.

Needs a thought bubble. "I feel like SUCH a tool."
