Lol, the P1000's long reach almost makes me feel like I'm cheating. This tiny bird (4-1/2 inches long from tip of long bill to tip of tail) was singing high up a treetop. I backed up a few steps to make the shooting angle a bit shallower, yet the camera's extreme zoom was still able to make the micro subject fill a good portion of the frame. :)
