110 Bird Pics That Went Horribly Wrong But Ended Up With Hilarious Results, As Shared On This Facebook Group (New Pics)

If there’s something we've learned from the hilariously entertaining Crap Wildlife Photography Facebook group that became a real hit online (check it out in our previous features here, here, and here!) it's that animals are unpredictable. But so is the weather forecast, camera battery, particular location, you name it. There’s also always a chance to get photobombed.

This Facebook group which follows in the same footsteps of photographic hilarity titled “Crap Bird Photography” offers the same amusement, except it features feathered friends only.

“You know the story: there's always something in the way, they just won't pose right; the camera does something it shouldn't; wrong exposure, fuzzy photos, can't get the bird in the frame, etc., etc.,” says the group’s description and its 118K members couldn’t agree more.

So we wrapped up some of the best of the crappiest takes on capturing a bird right below! Be sure to upvote your funniest and make sure to check out our previous article with more failed photos of birds.
