See the top of the page, I thought it would add my comment to the post, but it is only at the top. 

Anyway, it is just what it says, it is a post that has been recommended for other members to check out, for what ever reason. In this case, I recommended it because he specifically mentions that he had a lot of photos he really liked, but he still only posted one. One photo is all I originally intended to be posted, but that goes by the side some times.

Thanks for letting me know what that was. 
 

I always try to do one photo. However, do you mind if we do two photos of a species where the male and female look different? So one male and one female?  But, not with ospreys though.

I consider the day this photo was taken to be my best in the last 3 years.  I watched him circle the lake, dive in (talons first) and struggle a bit, then extend his wings while still in the water and then fly right past where I was standing.  What a show!

Okay, sorry about that.  Sometimes it's so hard to choose just one, but I will from now on.

You haven't been a problem at all!

It's alright with me if people post an extra photo every few weeks, but that turns into more and more.

What do you think if there is a species where the male and female look different. Can we post one of each if that’s the case?

Yes, I do mind, now if you can get both in a single photo....

 Please forgive my rant but I can't understand why people continue to post more than one photo when it has been politely pointed out time and time again that the theme of this thread is intended to showcase  "Your best photo of a bird species". There is no "s" to indicate multiple photos are requested and @Kevin has specifically, and repeatedly, asked that everyone post just ONE photo of each species, so why are there still posts with multiple photos? Are people not reading the requests for just one photo, do they just not care, or are they just being defiant? Rhetorical question.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, we all know that it's hard to pick just one photo... tough... pick ONE!   

While I'm up on this soapbox, I want to point out that there's many, many threads in the photo sharing section and most of them have a specific theme. As an example, Your Best Photo of the Day thread is pretty self explanatory, post your best photo of the day. It's not asking for all your photos of the day and it's not asking for your best photo from last year's archives. Before everyone gets in a panic, I'm not suggesting that all photos should be processed and posted on the same day they were taken to qualify for Best of the Day, but if they're not from your most recent shootings, they probably don't belong in the Best of the Day thread. There are other threads that apply but I think I have made my point with the example above. Let's try to keep things on theme and respect the way the thread was intended to be, there's no need to cram ALL our photos into one or two threads.

Please people, show respect for the rules/guidelines that have been set. After all, a Moderator has set the theme of this thread, let's not push him into acting like a Moderator just to stay on theme. ?
