  1. I learned that a few decades back while working here in the states with a product manager from Aberdeen. One could say an angry drunk got pissed because he got pissed.
  2. Some sort of Cynodont, Cynognathus maybe? Edit: I think Inostrancevia is a better fit.
  3. I'm no where near Joshua tree, but if I were, I'd definitely go and take photos of the vandalism that has taken place due to you know what and you know who.
  4. My Alamy portfolio includes images shot with full-frame Canons, APS-C Canons, a Canon G10, a Sony RX100 and now two Lumix GX85(80)s . Images from every one of them have licensed, most recently one from a GX85 for a commercial poster.
  5. I don't interpret having images available on FAA for print sales only to be a violation of exclusivity for stock sales on Alamy as long as you don't make them available for stock licensing at FAA. Perhaps Alamy can clarify on whether this it acceptable to them. I never had an image license through FAA anyway, so deactivating their stock feature wasn't a big deal.
  6. Bald cypress, Taxodium distichum, methinks. It's now commonly planted as a parkway tree, even north of its natural range. This one appears planted.They don't necessarily have to grow in swamps.
  7. You need a camera with a 1 inch sensor minimum. If money is an issue, look for older model Sony RX100s on eBay.
  8. Can new Alamy photographers submit News images? It’s been so long I don’t remember. It seems to me that News should be off limits until you show you can get several submissions through stock QC. I think Alamy News has an email address, so folks not yet accepted might be able to send images there if they’ve got something really good.
  9. From our early winter storm last week, also known by Great Lakes mariners as the "Witch of November." This was after things had subsided a bit.
  10. Tulip tree. Also known as yellow-poplar and tulip poplar. Liriodendron tulipifera. A member of the magnolia family native to my neck of the woods. And, they can get positively huge. Check this one out: https://www.flickr.com/photos/9991284@N05/2680728007
  11. As you may know, there's an election in these parts tomorrow. Three from a rally in Chicago yesterday.
  12. It's almost definitely a juvenile Buteo. As to which one, hard to say. But it's not Falco. The beak isn't toothed. BTW, did you know that DNA studies have shown hawks and falcons to be only distantly related? Falcons are more closely related to parrots. Edit: I take that Buteo thing back. Have a look at this juvenile goshawk: https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/londonbirders/images/5/51/Juvenile_Goshawk.JPG/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/1280?cb=20110825102224
