  2. I was on Stewart Island/Rakiura in NZ in December 2018. I really hoped to see a Kakapo. Even though Kakapos were taken to an island off Stewart Island as a sanctuary for them, hikers have apparently reported hearing what they thought were male kakapos booming on remote parts of Stewart Island. I also hoped the famous Kakapo named Sirocco might be on tour (he was raised by humans and thinks he's a human and sometimes travels around as part of an educational program on kakapos). Alas, saw no kakapos. But I did get to see a kiwi in the wild who just fossicked about me on the forest fl
  3. I don't see a problem with my See All Sales. Paulette Thanks Paulette, I checked it here again this morning (Australia time) and it is working again now.

  5. Just had a licence for this one for low $$ (I'm not sure if anyone else is experiencing this, but when I click on "See All Sales" on the dashboard and then select the dates for the sales I want to see, nothing comes up except the words "Account name:" I'm guessing it is just a glitch over the Christmas/New Year period).

  8. Thanks Alan. I expect sometime I will do something similar and pick one up second hand. It looks like a lot of fun.
  9. I especially love this colourful photo Alan that looks like it was taken with a fisheye lens. I've wondered about getting a fisheye lens and how useful or not it would be for stock photography. I can see here how it really works well and gives a great perspective of the scene.
  10. Yes, it's funny how some things, including birds and animals, seem to be only of interest to some people if considered rare. The Barred Owl is lovely. Certainly a fair bit bigger than the little Boobook.

  12. love it. probably good timing as 45th day would be before Jan 31st, so chance of a February payout Thanks Jean-François. Yes hopefully February. I just saw your owl photos. They are beautiful! I've had three small fledgling owls called a Boobook Owls visiting recently (Australia's smallest and most common owl). They chat to one another from the roof, telegraph wires and trees. One morning I even woke at dawn to the sound of an adult talking to one of the babies right outside my window. They are lovely to have around.

  15. So sorry to hear about your nephew Betty. Sending very best wishes.
  16. +1 to Colin's comments above. I recently took a macro image of a damselfly that I was pretty happy with. I then checked the competition on Alamy for that species of damselfly and realised what was already there was definitely superior to mine and so I decided not to upload it. It is worth considering what you can do better or differently if you are photographing subjects already covered on Alamy. I've only been with Alamy a short time and my sales cover four different subjects - a macro image of wildflowers, the exterior of a craft brewery business, an historic disused railway tunn

  20. Congratulations and great topic Bella! I am so impressed with everyone's images. I love seeing patterns in things so really enjoying everyone's contributions. Prayer wheels in Bhutan Three Pied Oystercatchers Light poles on a bridge
  21. Antisocial Tasmanian Devils we can well do without.😮 Yes, well they don't have the best table manners and apparently sometimes bite one another while feeding on carcasses, which is believed to be one way the facial tumour disease can spread. From the article it looks like they become antisocial if they have the disease, which might actually help reduce the spread of the disease. Before meeting some in Tasmania I thought they were scary, aggressive animals, but wildlife park staff said they are actually pretty shy in the wild (e.g. they are not going to launch a sudden, random

  23. I've seen that one before Paulette. It's so beautiful! They are so gentle, and the silverback is just making sure everything is ok and looking after his family group. They're grooming the human just like they do each other.
  24. Hey Sally, thanks for your kind words! I'm actually quite shy, but when I'm in work mode that kind of disappears, especially if the pressure's on to get sellable pics. You should try news, perhaps soft stories at first to get a handle of stuff. If you've any questions, send me an email, although there are far better press shooters than me on here. Many thanks Andy. That's good to know it is possible to be a bit shy but still get good people images when in work mode. Yes, I would definitely be inclined towards soft news stories. I'm not sure I'm cut ou
