Share Your Best Photo of the Day


Message added by aveschapinas,

Folks: it's not OK to take other people's photos to edit and re-post. Just like we don't correct each other's spelling and grammar, we don't take it upon ourselves to decide that someone's photo needs correction. In addition, as has been emphasized before, you need to respect copyright.

I'll teach you something that saves space in your upload quota for WhatBird but still displays the full file. You need to have the photo uploaded to eBird first. Open the separate Macaulay Library link. Click and hold on the picture as you drag it up to the top so that it opens in a separate tab. Then copy the link of the new photo into WhatBird's "Insert image from URL" box.

So the link for your red-breasted nuthatch picture looks like this. https://cdn.download.ams.birds.cornell.edu/api/v1/asset/313594961/2400?__hstc=264660688.908b83db6a082340e81ceaac5c15853a.1612404792820.1614892009639.1614899974711.92&__hssc=264660688.19.1614898835167&__hsfp=1895085607#_ga=2.46863076.2139383707.1614731539-1012602410.1614731539

Thanks!  It's good to be here.  I haven't been posting too much recently, but I probably will be a little more active now that the weather's getting nicer.  Here are some bonus pictures for the thread.

I like this one because it seems to capture the character of the Blue Jay, that cheeky/arrogant glance.

Beautiful shot! Just out of honest curiosity, why is that shot not a 5 star?  Lighting is pretty epic, composition is good, and it’s sharp. Very good photo overall imo.

If I rate it against the County photos then maybe a 5, but against the top eBird photos a 4 at best mostly because of the fussy background and the composition seems a little "unbalanced".

Your rating plus my 4 pushed it into the top County photos for the week showing again the lack of local interest in photos.

I feel a little guilty about providing a photo link (it feels wrong somehow) but otherwise fairly decent photos (mine and others) tend to just disappear.
