There have been rumours of this illusive beastie for a while, finally while clearing a leaf pile, out it hopped.



Anyone else got any interesting wildlife photos?

I wish I did more Wildlife photography, but to do it well takes real dedication.

There were six of these beauties perched at low level in scrubby trees - we returned for 3 days in a row gathering footage of them ... A Magical experience ... :w00t:

Great shots Sunray, and to get a long eared owl and night Jar, just brilliant :welldone

A few shots of some deer in the Autumn:







And I had no chance with this kingfisher, it was going too fast and I wasn't set up for it so I went arty to hide my lack of skill:

Thanks Chris ... ;}

Lovely Clear and low angle shots mate - Nice work ...

Make no mistake ... The kingfisher in flight is a mighty difficult shot to achieve ...

Congrats mate ... :welldone

I'm glad I'm a vegetarian because how long will it be before any of these fellow inhabitants of our planet appear in the Jazz Recipes section?

Wow, very impressed with some beautiful shots. It's New Year's day and I have a heavy head, is that the reason I can't work out how to add photos?

Hey Dave ...

Click Go Advanced ...

Look for the Insert Image Icon [A small square with a picture of a tree] next to the Envelope Icon[Insert Email Address]

Then upload from the web or your computer ...

Ask for more help if you are still stuck ... ;}

Pete, and Sunray, thanks for your patience, but I am still struggling with this. Everything you have written, makes sense to me, but I seem to only be able to enter a web address, rather than finding a file within my mac. I have photos stored on my laptop, and can't work out how to upload these.

You've almost done it mate ...

It may be that your saved picture is to large a file ...

I save it as a JPeg - size 500 pixels wide by whatever height it gives ... [I use Photoshop to do this]

Then save it at medium quality - 5

Which creates a small file the size of my pictures - which is handled OK by the website ...

Give that a try ... :welldone

PS Don't be apologetic mate ... your doing fine ... :mrcool
