**** Weekly Wildlife Thread Feb 1 to Feb 6 ****

It's Saturday where some of you live, so we all can post!

Audubon magazine has an interesting debate regarding its photo contest rules. A great image that was on its short list was disqualified when the raw file was examined. The submitted horizontal orientation photo was a combination of two pics, the owl from a vertical orientation shot with added environmental pixels from a horizontal shot. The pose of the owl in vertical orientation was very desirable. To me it's not as clear cut as it initially seemed. They do allow stitched panoramas. For this thread, you have artistic license! Just let us know what you did, share your secrets, we won't tell!

To post your pics, please reply to THIS post and change the title. Otherwise, in threaded mode, your post will appear to be a comment to another's post. We don't want to overlook your pics! Threaded mode lists posts in a hierarchy which is ideal for viewing threads like this one.

Try to limit pics to three or so and identify subjects if possible. It would be nice if you would provide location and other info others might find interesting. And do comment on others' pics if so moved. Everyone is welcome to participate with any camera, any time. Lurkers and new members please join in.

When out viewing and photographing wildlife, I want all of you to be safe. I also want the wildlife to remain safe and minimally impacted by our presence.
