Edit: This is the trouble with multiquote. It's got a mind of its own. It doesn't behave properly and I end up faffing around for far too long trying to get it to do what I want. If it did behave I'd probably comment on more photos than I do because they're all fabulous.

Here's the trick. MQ behaves properly if you use it by itself, not combined with other buttons in a post. If you use MQ and QUOTE, you'll get duplicate posts in your typing window. Just do this: MQ . . . MQ . . . MQ . . . POST TO THREAD.


PRONOUN ADVISORY: OhLook is a she. | A FEW CORRECT SPELLINGS: lens, aperture, amateur, hobbyist, per se, raccoon, whoa, more so (2 wds.), shoo-in | IMAGE EDITING OK

I see you style yourself as "Nikon fledgling". I think you can safely take flight now, 'cos that's a great shot.

You also have to be sure not to delete QUOTE and /QUOTE (both enclosed in square brackets) if you amend a post to save space.

and seems only decent images I can get this month for posting are mainly all Fairy wrens. Need a change of venue I think.

Great shot. Its body almost looks too large for its legs.

Sweeeet. I'd send that off to AdoramaPix and get a 20x30, frame it and hang it.

Ferruginous Hawk, correct?

Correction: Harris Hawk
