Your WORST identifiable photos (1 Viewer)

Everybody with a camera's got plenty of bad, deleted photos. I want to see the bad photos that didn't get deleted, because the bird was actually recognizable.

Like this guy. Wildly out of focus, but if that's not a male Common Yellowthroat, I'll eat my camera strap.

You are describing virtually all my photos. The attached was when photography used to be more challenging last century. It was my only photo from three twitches for one particular species. I saw it on each attempt. I consider that it is identifiable and it is actually one of my favourite photos. If it is identifiable, I do not need to say the species or as a result the date or location.

All the best

An Olive-backed Oriole is mine (at the moment). A lifer of course seen in Brisbane.

I think Paul is right. Photos put up in this thread shouldn't have captions: identifiability will be confirmed (or otherwise!) by posters putting a name to the bird. I like the idea, who doesn't love a mystery bird? I'll have a look for mine later.
