  1. I only really started uploading in 2018, first sale was only in 2019. Here's how my 2019 compares to 2020. 2019: sales - 8 revenue - lowish $$$ 2020: sales - 21 revenue - very high $$$. oh so nearly $$$$ almost a triple of sales volume, and a five fold increase in revenue. Am happy with that. Though, I don't hope for much of an increase over 2020 this year. While I have added more, and still have a fair few more to add, it's not as much of an increase in image count as I'd like due to covid. Have been so slow to list a lot of
  2. sweet little blue tit in the spring in a patch near home that kept me mostly sane during worst of lockdown
  3. Well, yesterday, not today, but booked a holiday to Greece. Yes, even given the current world state! Of course, things could go horribly wrong in the next 4 weeks, but I won't book anything during school holidays, and if I was having a "staycation" here in the UK, but I have my reasons for not Fingers crossed things remain good til we are there. My partner and I have been very cautious since all this began, especially with him working in care, and we both are in serious need of a timeout.
  4. This little fella was taking his life in his "hands" walking out in the open, completely exposed, right near a kestrel nest with 3 fledglings
  5. Scenes like this make me think about travelling... wonder when thats going to happen again... I'm seriously looking into what options I have this year. It's such a minefield though.
  6. They are one of my fav uk birds. I now have quite a few photos of them. I have three great locations for them near me - Richmond Park, the Thames jsut a 20 min walk away, and Windsor Park - which I was going to visit today, but am knackered after my day out yesterday 😕
  7. You were so lucky with the Waxwings - something I am still desperately after! Maybe this winter! It's such a lovely shot I know what you mean about exciting moments getting the better of you - just yesterday, I encountered my first stoat - a weasel like creature for anyone not sure. I was just so flabbergasted, I forgot how to use my camera Still got a couple of ok shots - helped by at one point it coming to within about 3 meters of me! Despite me not getting that I actually went out for - this made up for it
  8. This was a special moment for me a couple of months ago - for years I have wanted to see grebes carrying their chicks around. I wish I had been able to get lower down, but it was just lovely to see I have a special day our planned for tomorrow - going to some wetlands I have not visited since before lockdown. It was going to be two days running I was having outings, but Saturday isn't looking so good right now.
  9. My usage for this in The Financial Times from a month or two ago finally showed up low/mid $$
  10. Yeah, people do like to take advantage. With any luck, I will have a clearer idea of whether or not I'll get the promotion by end of the week.
  11. Oh my. That is insane! I had no idea anything quite so large was in use.
  12. Well, I don't know if this is a bad thing, but I'm putting my foot down today with regards to my role at work. My immediate boss resigned in December, with 3 months notice, and come March, the HOD of my department still hadn't hired anyone. So I started picking up more responsibility before my immediate boss left, and I picked up a hell of a lot more responsibility once covid kicked in. I told them I'd keep things running in the interim (work for charity, so wanted to do my bit), but it is now ~6 months later, and still nobody hired, despite having the OK to hire. I hav
  13. Finally started uploading "new" content again. I have decided to put off majority of my keyword reviewing until winter - I have a lot to fix, and I'd rather use the nicer weather to get out into nature now.
