    $50,000 offered for bird photo

    A private donor has offered $ 50, 000 to anyone who presents photographic proof of the ivory-billed woodpecker, hoping to rekindle enthusiasm for the bird reportedly spotted in the state (Arkansas) in 2004.

    Full story....

    If Doug Herr get this photo, he can move up to an S2.

    Great deal. All you have to do is spend a year or so in an Arkansas swamp (not that that would be bad), and be very lucky. Assuming, of course, that there are any ivory bills alive.

    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    What if you photoshopped the ivory bill?
