    Thanks for posting up these pics Geoff - they are a constant source of wonder in both subject and technique.

    You can see most of them, and much, much more, on Surfbirds and/or Birdforums

    Personally, I think I would rather see this thread dedicated to Wammers, or their mates, photographs, rather than one's taken from the web. waddya think?

    Don't wish to be rude to Geoff, but agree and said so months ago. With respect, anyone can print someone else's random pic.
    Even the losers get lucky sometimes.

    Me neither, not at all.

    I just think that it is great to see how many people here have taken an interest in bird photography.

    As I said, there are sites around that are full of amazing bird pic's.

    I agree with you both. I know Geoff is posting up other peoples work and in hindsight my comment is a bit stupid.

    Difficult one this, I enjoy looking at Geoff's posts as I wouldn't go on a bird forum but I really appreciate a pic by a Wammer knowing how hard it is to get one.
    I'm not sure if many of the excellent photograhers on the Wam look in here, I wish they would and post some pics because its such a challenge.

    I'm not all that bothered, either way. I'm not looking to suggest banning them or anything like that, I just prefer to see Wammers pics.

    I can get all of those fantastic "semi-pro" shots elsewhere. Some of my birding friends produce staggering results, but there again, they have megabucks kit and have been in the game for years.

    If Barney wishes me to stop posting photos then I will comply. I'm a lifelong bird lover and a member of BirdForum but not a photograper, I just thought you guys would enjoy seeing stunning bird pictures. I've never taken credit for any of them.

    Geoff.

    Geoff, please don't take this personally. I agree with what you say above, regarding credit etc. They are truly stunning pictures and I love them. Personally, I just think that wammers pics are more interesting, as we see people developing (pun intended) their techniques.

    I may have worded my post badly, but it wasn't meant to upset anyone, especially you Besides, it's not my thread, just offering an opinion.

    I think if this was a free standing birder forum I'd have total sympathy, but it isn't. It's part of a photography forum, so I feel that your own pics are more valid. No-one said they have to be good, just personal experiences was my thought, but don't get offended Geoff. Post away, they are amazing pics I agree.

    Never been able to take a pic of a Jay because they are so timid and never stay still. Notice the birds head has maybe started to move as its very slightly not as sharp, typical of the Jay.
    For any beginners a Jay is a member of the Crow family, very colourful compared to the others.
