"...in my case it comes down to the idiot doing the proof reading and seeing what I thought I wrote..." - Graham you could be everything but definitely not an "idiot"!Hi ISv.
Thanks, no hard feelings and I try not to point out mistakes unless I think it changes the context of the post! I’m also aware that many here do not have English as a first language , as I can’t speak more than a couple of words in any other language I am in awe of them!
I could blame the spell correction algorithms, however in my case it comes down to the idiot doing the proof reading and seeing what I thought I wrote and not what spell check changed it to!
Damn spell check just changed to into too!
People in glasshouses shouldn’t throw stones!
My apologies to Pape for miss spelling your name.
Pretty bird! Wish I weren't here in the snow in Alberta.Is anyone on here close to Albany, Wyoming? There is currently a Red Flanked Bluetail being seen and photographed. The bird is from Siberia in summer and in the middle of the continent over there during winter. If anyone is and is interested in a location, message me and I'll give you more info. Thanks.
I guess I should clarify - about 2mm of snow as of yesterday, but regardless, it still looks white. Funny, wherever we went in Costa Rica, the popular draw for birds was bananas and of course they grow locally and aren't expensive to put out at the feeders. Overall, the local folks seem to be pretty keen on attracting birds and I think I know why.Jack, for you to cheer you up from the warm Ecuadorean Andes while you are now up to your neck in driven Canadian snow. A selection of Tanagers shot by wife using the 5DIV and her 100-400mm II. Lucky woman will be using the 90D +100-400mm II next week while I'll use the heavier 5DSR + 100-400mm II and probably the 1.4xTC as well in our birding trip to the Hula valley.

Good pose!Walking around some local fields I saw one of the Kestrels hovering to my right and as I started to go that way, she dove. A moment later she came back up and flew back the direction I had just came from, landing on a side branch of a tobacco tree with a mouse. It took a bit to get some shots of her eating without the topmost branch in the way but after she was done, she hopped up on the top branch and did some preening/stretching just as the sun was dropping behind the horizon. Almost like she was showing off for me as she went through the whole routine twice and some of the stretches a couple more times.
