@ChrisUK, have you considered placing your photos on a site like http://pixabay.com or http://pixhere.com They are a great place to disseminate your work and receive some useful public awareness.
I already have as much "public awareness" as I'm comfortable with thanks ;)

(I've been a member of various Wildlife and Photography sites for years, just not using the username "ChrisUK". My "work" is for my own benefit - so I can remember what I saw, as I'm an old man that already has a faulty memory... If others like looking at the pictures as well, that's a bonus.)

Is that the eye of one of your falcon or hawk subjects? Cool. Love the 2 insect ones and the duck/goose just landing in the water.

Maybe it's just me but the one above - flying heron - for some reason looks like you superimposed the bird onto a blue background.

The "Eye" is of a Greylag Goose - the Grey Heron is a heavy crop of a distant bird, so perhaps your seeing the effect of the atmosphere/heat haze etc... I don't have the time to mess about with cloning/copy-pasting etc ;)

I forgot to say; if any of my pics are wanted for Antix, just point me to the logo and where to upload, and I'll gladly replace the MX logo and add them. After all, Debian->Antix->MX ;)
