Honestly, this bird flying with blurry wings makes your picture more interesting than if it was just sitting on the branch! Now your picture has a story! #16447

I totally agree with you Tracy It was just that I was trying a few different things out with the camera settings etc for some wildlife portraits and I needed a subject when this shot came about :). #16450

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
