Default Two very different birds

Took this colourful pair today - a Muscovy drake & a Bird of Paradise

Brownie - nice shot, but that's one ugly bird!

Nice shots both, but I had a problem viewing - unless I log in, I am not able to view the pics. Are the rules changing?

Funnily enough I cannot even see my own pictures unless I log in! Is it because I am linking to pictures that I have uploaded to my own album on this site? Perhaps that makes them only available to logged-in members.

I am very fond of Mucovies as my father kept & bred them - real characters. They are actually of South American origin & are officially a type of goose rather than a duck (and don't ask me to define the difference!)

Ditto to the problem of viewing. When I logged in, they both showed up, but not as a guest.

How are you posting these pics? I've just uploaded as attachments, but is there a better way? More specifically, is there a way to better keep the sharp images that seem to get lost in the simple upload as attachments.

Gotta' like these images, ... like I keep hoping for from my FZ35.

Haha sorry, nothing personal about the bird - I just think all that red skin is strange.... I'm sure they are saying something similar about us humans.

I am adding my favourite photos to my Album on this site. Then I copy the BB Code from beneath the picture I want to post here & copy & paste it into my post. I think I made my album only visible to registered members so I guess that is why the pictures do not show up unless you log in. I'll go check the settings & change them & see what happens.

It's OK saly - I was not offended . . . . but Mr Muscovy might be!!
