A flame Robin from my recent ski trip to Falls Creek (Vic). Detail is a bit lacking however as I hardly see these guys anymore anything is better than nothing :) (I think they are currently classified as threatened)

What a gorgeous Robin, Clipper. Sad to hear it's threatened.

I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.

There's only around 50 Spoonbills in the UK at present. I was at the Slimbridge Wetland Wildlife Reserve this morning when a Spoonbill dropped in and landed 10 metres in front of the hide I was in. At one stage I had to take the 1.4x TC off and it's not often I have to do that. How lucky is that. It stayed for 20 minutes and flew off. Despite the Overcast dull, grey day I was fortunate enough to get some photo's that I was very pleased with.

What wonderful good fortune to have the chickens come to you!!! Excellent shots. I think the overcast weather frequently helps the shots providing more uniform lighting and less shadows.

Most members use sRGB jpgs. Try whatever you have & see if it works.

Worth noting the last time I looked into this most browsers under windows ignored the colour space info even if included in the file, so sRGB is the safest colour space to use for the web even if you use something else in your post processing workflow.
