Caption Contest #22!

Most of you know the drill by now for these BOTB Caption Contests. I mean, we've done 21 of them! For any fresh-faced newcomers, here's how it goes:

Use the Comment interface at the bottom of this post to write a silly/funny/engaging/philosophical caption for the photograph shown above, then wait around twiddling your thumbs while our panel of world-renowned caption experts debates the merits of all submissions (and guzzles huge amounts of micro-brewed pale ale, or if it's breakfast time, bird-friendly shade-grown coffee and a few pale ales). They pick a winner. If it's you, you get a fabbo prize: in this case one of the brand-new products from Bird Watcher's Digest: a optics cleaning kit.

So huff some fog on your spec lenses and clean off the schmutz so you can see to write your most bestest, funniest caption. I can't wait to read it!

You can't hold birders back! These World Volleyball Championship judges just can't resist sharing their Antpitta pictures in between rounds.

Even if the goalkeeper is down, I am not going to play a header.

The special effects crew gets in some quick birding while setting up the opening scene for "Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark."

Anxiously, a group of birders wait for the egg of the previously thought to be extinct Jumbo Owl to hatch so they can add it to their life lists. Come on, Jumbo Owl, we have other birds to go see today!

Next, we head over to the Epcot lagoon to check out the flamingos - then it's over to to the McDonald's at Downtown Disney to see scavenging spoonbills eating french fries!

Sorry. I'm not touching this caption with a ten-inch pole.

Don't turn around guys. There's a big yellow ball staring at us, and you don't want to startle it.

This summer, at a beach near you, just when you thought it was safe to go birding....

Let's just hope Mama Roc doesn't come home anytime soon.

After Jack and his friends climbed the beanstalk, they decided to attend a soccer game.

Ok, who chose this as our Big Sit location?!

Are you sure we're going to find birds here? My camera doesn't work if a giant ball is behind me.

As they excitedly snap pictures, the boys can't believe their luck at finding an Ivory-billed Woodpecker egg!

Caution: objects seen in your camera are bigger than they appear.

Photographers endlessly debate the perplexity of dSLR camera settings appropriate for shooting bright yellow up close.
