  2. Nice pics - but you could have wiped the mud off the puffin's beak before taking the shot :)

    ... and a

    Great Grey Shrike

    OK, so here you can now see the power (or lack thereof) of the zoom, but we were just strolling along the beach towards the shopping centre when this flew across our path.

    I see you bird photos and raise you 1 Afro Chicken, 1 golden pheasant, 1 ugly as sin llama, and a stinky black boar. I know they are not as good as your photo's but i think the chicken is pretty awesome

    In that case, can I come in on a side bet with the biggest butterfly in the universe??? (Well, it's got wings....)

    and an iguana, and a sheep, and a whale shark, and a SEA'ORSE????? :wink:

    Very nice, that IS one big butterfly!

    Adding a picture is as easy as adding a link, once you have your pictures hosted, as you already have.

    Simply copy your link, click on the image tab, (three along from the url tab, and paste your link in there.

    OR

    You can "attach" images to your post which means you don't have to have the pictures hosted on a site.

    Click on the paper clip and open "manage attachments". Browe your computer for your image (you may need to adjust the size), and select upload. This done, place your cursor where you want your image to appear in the post, click on the paperclip again and click on your image.
    :)

    That's easy for you to say! I shall try to follow your instructions, but don't blame me if you get a view of Uranus (or perhaps tonight's new moon) instead-hee hee! ;)
