Bluebear, on the list of icons on your 'reply' screen select the second one from the left on the bottom row (looks like a picture and says 'Insert Image' when you hover over it). It should give you the following (img)(/img) but with square brackets [] instead of (). You then paste your URL inbetween the two [][]s.

Hey - it worked!  Thanks!

I'll try another one then!  This photo & the previous one were both taken in Africa - hard to believe isn't it!

I'd like to say that I was on foot just a few yards away (!!)- but yes, they were taken from a vehicle on a trip to South Africa last year.  Used a 5D with a 70-300 Sigma lens and cropped the image to close in on mother & cub.

The penguins were shot at Boulders Beach near Cape Town on the same trip using the same camera/lens combo.

Got quite a few - lions & cheetah mainly.  Going back to SA in a couple of weeks and spending some time on a game reserve specialising in cheetah conservation.  Looks like the shutter will be busy!

I'd love to see some more of your big cat pics Bluebear. Do you have a website or link to share or can you put a few more up here? Thanks. Macka.

Harris hawk chick... known as an "eyass" in Falconry terms. He was about 4 days old.

Michael,

Great shots of the pup. The B&W is THE image for sure ... the red slightly distracts from the dog and since it is a black dog anyway. Nice work.

Yeah great shots Michael. I'm sure the owners must have been really pleased to have such a great portrait of their beautiful pup. I love Labrador pups. I actually think I prefer the colour shot because it almost looks black and white apart from the splash of colour from the red collar and yellow leaf and it looks a little warmer. For me the colour just adds a touch more interest.

I prefer the colour shot as well,
The eyes of the dog in the colour one give the dog life, whereas the B/W one although a good picture is a little too cold for my liking.

Great shot.
