  1. You're welcome, Russell. Well done for climbing that steep zigzag path to get that photo! Countryfile seem to report very promptly - usually before I get the magazine.
  2. I've also noticed that it has been taking longer than usual for the database to update and for new images to go on sale. This seems to have been happening for the last 10 days or so.

The protesters urged Yorkshire Water to stop leasing land above the town for grouse shooting.

  4. They certainly sell. My best 2 sales this month are macro shots of insects. Having said that, there is a lot of competition with some subjects, such as butterflies and bees, so it can be hard to stand out. Of course there are a lot of insect species, so it's worth trying to find and photograph the rarer species, and life stages, etc. As with photography of people, it can help if the bugs are doing something!
  5. Interesting that they do work in some cases! Doesn't Hector scare other garden birds away too?
  6. I think it's been over 48 hours, but it seems to be starting to update now - I can see a few of my photos captioned 2 days ago coming through.
  7. Had a welcome flurry of 6 sales today - 3 for presentation/newsletter (UK), and 3 distributor sales to Germany, so no big money unfortunately. This was the best priced licence - mid/high $$ for a German magazine, but I only get 30%: This was one of the presentation/newsletter licences at very low $$ (the rose garden at Loseley Park):
  8. 2 sales reported this morning - one a tiddler for Culture Trip, and this one for high $$ to the US (RF, no other information).
  9. Thanks for sharing this interesting story, Sally. Pigeons are certainly survivors, and not easily deterred, but we tend to forget how important they have been in wartime. It's a shame they're so widely disliked. The pigeon using remembrance poppies for her nest is really poignant.
  10. I quite like this angry-looking owl, which is failing to deter the pigeons!

  12. Mine was a little below average with 8 sales for $166 gross. The good news is that I'm due my best ever payment.
  13. A Presentation use sale, low $$ - happy to get any sale on a Bank holiday.
