On The Month - September challenge (4 comments in total)

I'm a little confused about the month theme challenges.
The capture date rules say No Restrictions.
Shouldn't it be at least required that the submitted image be taken in the theme month?
In this case Sept.

In reply to:

The Mick: That's one heckuva perfectly timed shot! Lots of detail in that little fish, too. That is until it went missing :o) (I presume). Thanks for sharing!
Mick

Oh that fish has been missing for quite some time. I suspect it's grandkids, uh I mean grandfish, are missing by now as well.
Thanks Mick, glad you liked this anhinga pic!

Outstanding as always Mick.
Should have placed higher but as usual the pretty pictures get the votes over wildlife.

ThanksForMemories: Suberbe!
Plus I now know how they do it.

Hey thanks, glad you liked this photo!
See lots more anhinga photos here:

And a bunch of my blog posts about them (with different pics) here:

I can do a reverse image search on many of the images from my wildlife photography blog and return pages of results. Lots of photos are being used in various ways all over the world, and I basically don't really mind or care.
It wouldn't matter anyway, what am I going to do? Sue some web site in China, Russia, or Saudi Arabia?
For those nice enough to ask, I always donate my photos and have done so many times over the years.
Earlier this year I donated a wood stork photo to the Chicago Field Museum that is part of their current exhibit.
I have been quite fortunate with my blog however, I have a nice solid group of honest, intelligent followers and visitors.

On The Stare Down in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (3 comments in total)
In reply to:

The Mick: Please forgive me in advance... I hope this doesn't come across as being rude. I believe this image has had some major photoshop work done to the underside of the Egret, because that bird must have some huge cojones, yet I don't see them. ;o) BTW, great nature shot and good luck in the challenge!
Mick

Thanks Mick, looks like the voters didn't think much of it though.
The pretty pictures always seem to rate high, while something that is relatively difficult to see and capture gets ignored.
Oh well...
See ya,
Phil

I can't believe the low votes here. Nice photo of a cute kitty.
It's hard to get a good face in a black cat and this one looks great.

The Mick: Love the beautifully exposed Spoony, Phil. I'm a big fan and hope to be able to come down and visit one day.
Take care,

Thanks much Mick. I enjoy seeing and photographing the pink birds almost as much as I do our happy alligator pals.
Come down any time!

On 3rd Place challenge (19 comments in total)
In reply to:

Buzz Lightyear: What is great about these "runner up" challenges is the obvious high quality of photographs entered. It is a feast for the eyes to see all these wonderful images collected in one place. While they didn't win a 1st in their previous respective challenges, any of them are deserving of a top placement. My head is spinning trying to select a winner here.

Yeah but that's also what's not great about them too. Unfortunately somebody's excellent photo is going to end up being in 100th. place.
Probably none of these photos deserve to be placed lower then first page 1-16 but sadly that's the way it's going to have to turn out.
It's going to be even worse if there is a challenge for only 2nd. place finishers and totally crazy to do it for first place entries.

Brev00: Great software! I got it free a couple of months ago and use it often. It operates as a plug-in in Elements so is quite convenient. You just have to withstand all the offers for the full package.

No good then on 32 bit W 7?
