Great set. Never even heard of an owlfly, let alone seen one. Now I'm off to learn more...

And welcome to the Macro Forum :)

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome.
Dave is it just me or don't your links on your macro images page work? Can only see the slide show no images.

Here are a few more samples from my gallery

I'm not quite sure what you mean. What browser are you running? There are several issues...

1. Firstly, Microsoft took a LONG while to fix a bug with IE in regards to flash - it would prompt the user to 'click here to activate' before becoming an active flash applet. Suggestion - upgrade to IE7 if using IE6, if using IE7 make sure that you are fully up to date. This *will* resolve this issue.

2. Due to FireFox not being W3C compliant when it comes to displaying multimedia objects like flash, I have had to resort to an UGLY hack to get flash both to work, and the code to remain w3c compliant. This results in IE users have 2 issues - a) flash will not stream until the flash is completely downloaded b) IE will not prompt you to either install, or update flash. I have built the flash files for the latest version, which most people *should* be running. I probably should have just "stuff you" to the FireFox users, since they are only a small percentage of web visitors, but I felt like being nice.

3. Can you see the menus at all? If so, if you hover your mouse over them, do they go Red? If they do not go Red, click once in the area of the menu. The try hovering the mouse again over any of the links, does that work? If so, see point 1 above.

4. If you can see the links go Red, but clicking on them does not work, then I am at a loss. If you can see the main flash intro slideshow, you have flash both installed and working on your system (and thus not disabled). The menu should work. My suggestion is to empty your cache and cookies, restart the browser and try again.

5. Clicking on any of the Image Gallery link should take you to the main gallery pages, which have clickable links courtesy of html/javascript. If you have javascript disabled, then I suspect that they won't work.

That's about all I can think of, off the top of my head.

Dave

Thanks Dave, Must have been the late hour I didn't notice firefox had blocked a script from running as soon as I allowed it things were fine. Great web page set up you are smarter than I am with coding. I rely on the boys at Smugmug to come up with the ideas and I cut and paste the coding:-)

Thanks everyone for you kind comments on my work, almost enough incentive to go out and shoot some more today! :-) but its raining so alas not today. I have been amazed at the variety we have found in this one spot and I am sure there are more yet to unearth. I love my 100MM Canon Macro!!

Here is a shot of the area most of my photos were taken at. My album on Smugmug covers a period from August last year until about April this year.
