Gray Catbird: North American Population 10m, 15-49% increase over the past 30 years. (Exposure: 1/60 @ f/4.5, ISO 100, Canon PowerShot G10)

With some practice and luck you don’t necessarily need an expensive camera with a super-telephoto lens. This shot was taken in a National Audubon sanctuary in Florida, then cropped. Note the slow shutter speed and sharpness. I was ready–though the bird did not sit for long, it was motionless.  (More photos at: http://sfielding.photoshop.com)
