There's an un-cropped version of this Mockingbird below, I'm afraid it show too much compression - but then again I still don't have DSL and have a fetish about quick loading...:idea:

Thanks!

I have this thing about small files. Since I don't have DSL, no one else does...:roll:

So, I'm trying to look good...

On the original post of the Mocking bird you simply cannot see the snow on its beak. It's just plain missing.

Shocked! I am SHOCKED!:?

Of course, even my crop, was too compressed and lost in translation....

On the other hand my attourney has been informed. Could you please send me your exact address for the summons? :blah:

You don't mind coming to New York to be sued do you?

Seriously.

Here's my original post. Note that there is no snow on the beak. The dangers and evils of compression...

Hi Dave, sometimes I get similar files mixed up if they are very much the same and were taken immediately after one another. It seems, upon inspection, that the closeup you have heremay not bethe same photograph but may be another very similar moment captured when the bird had more snow on it's beak. Looking carefully at the backgroundI seemed tonotice that the limbs are not in the exact same place.

I'm on a telephone line and don't like to compress my photos too much. I'd rather crop them and keep the details that I can. Asmaller fileof low compression to me is better than a larger filewith high compression. Just my thought on this matter. I likemany of your photos but suspect that I'm not seeing them as well as they could be seen primarily because of the degree of compression.

Cheers

What fooled me was this guy, was SOOOO interested in eating snow. I have a dozen pictures of him and this is the ONLY one where he doesn't have snow on his beak.

:-) I've done that sort of thing many times with burst and series shots. It's a difficult thing sometimes to see. Great looking bird.
