    Not sure if it would fly judging from the beer gut on that fella! Is this a US shot, or 'zoo'? Or both?!

    Very nice in all respects. Now you just need to capture a Firecrest or Wren with that 100-400 :rotfl: :rotfl:

    I think they could be Moorhen chicks ... second one is latest addition to the Ryanair fleet!

    So, what goodies did you sneak in via customs? A Canon 1000mm f1.4 L :clap:

    John how are you getting to load your shots that big on to here and keep the quality? I have to reduce them that much to get under the 120KB its not worth putting them on the quality is reduced that much

    Using PShop or PS Elements, I just resize to 800 wide, then save as xxx, but adjust the jpeg quality to get the file size down.

    Some of those recent ones have been reduced to level 6
