Because as I said when casting this !vote, the effort you made to take that picture has to be recognized somehow. Daniel Case (talk) 20:58, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

Behavioural context[edit]

Hi, thanks for this amazing picture File:Pied_kingfisher_(Ceryle_rudis_rudis)_female_eating_chick.jpg! Would you know what the chick is of, the same species? might be of use in some animal behaviour related article if the context is clearly understood. Shyamal L. (talk) 14:29, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

I don't know for sure @Shyamal:. There were no other species around yet about 300 pied kingfishers nesting in the same area, so I make that 90%+ sure. I've researched the net and cannot find any mention of cannibalism for kingfishers. I didn't capture any swallowing, so I thought it was possible the bird is playing with the chick, but my wife saw the bird being swallowed. I'd love to know more, as would our guide - it was new to him. Charles (talk) 14:41, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

License violation by Indian government[edit]

You might be interested in checking out this postage stamp! No words! Shyamal L. (talk) 15:45, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

  • Thanks @Shyamal:. Yes I was notified some weeks ago by a guy in India and have written to the Indian Postal Authorities, but no reply of course... I am visiting India in November - perhaps I will try again. Charles (talk) 19:08, 29 March 2017 (UTC)
If you are visiting southern India, I will be happy to take you to some good birding places. Shyamal L. (talk) 04:20, 15 April 2017 (UTC)
Hope you had a good trip to India. I am guessing from your image stream that you did not get to southern India! PS: just saw the Black-hooded oriole picture, looking forward to seeing more of the southern specialities. Shyamal L. (talk) 02:41, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

Archaeodontosaurus, Ikan Kekek, El Grafo, and Charles; you have all been very kind and helpful in showing how the VI and QI processes work (I'm nowhere near the FP level yet as you know) and giving me tips on taking better pictures. I know I have a lot to learn about photos. I do truly appreciate all your help. PumpkinSky talk 21:54, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

The description on today's POTD gave me a good laugh. Thennicke (talk) 03:39, 5 August 2017 (UTC)

Macedonian butterflies[edit]

Hi Charles, here are two more corrections : this one is Argynnis niobe (see the different arrangement of white marks and red background color on the hindwing), and that one is Satyrium acaciae (see for example the shape of the white postdiscal line near the inner margin). Were they also identified by your Bulgarian lepidopterist? Kind regards --LamBoet (talk) 21:16, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Yes, all were identified by him, but of course it will be me who has made the mistakes. I will be checking everything when he returns from holidays in ~ 10 days. It would be very nice if I had photographed Argynnis niobe as it was not on our species list for the tour. I do hope you know your stuff! Charles (talk)
I do, but these are identifications you should be able to convince yourself of. Don't solely rely on other people ;-)

Than you...[edit]

... for this. It has been very illustrative. Have a nice new year! DPC (talk) 12:21, 28 December 2017 (UTC) =

I'm curious[edit]

Yes, 1/125. Anything wrong with it? Maybe it would have been better to ignore it from this point, but I'm just curious -- usually I don't upload out-of-focus photos (and when I do, I don't nominate them anyway). I rather think, there is problem with sharpness of many of your pictures, and, btw, the blue-eared starling that I reworked for you, you didn't reupload by now, nor even said thank you. So, after all that, I actually not feel like paying much attention to you and your activities, but if you wish to assess any of my pictures, it would be just fair to refrain from wrong analysis. --A.Savin 18:47, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

I am more than happy A.Savin to refrain from what you call wrong analysis, if you do too. I think 20 other voters might call your "quality is rather on the poor side" assessment of this quickly-promoted image 'wrong anaysis'.
Referring to the starling image which you reworked on 15 December: I replied with many thanks on the same day explaning what I liked and what I didn't like about your Lightroom editing. I made it clear I preferred the results from my own editing, so naturally I was not going to upload yours. I asked you how long your editing took - you replied 5 minutes. I replied 16 December, again saying 'many thanks'. So please do not accuse me of rudeness. I am happy to resend the mails. Charles (talk) 21:09, 6 April 2018 (UTC)
Still I got no explanation from you, why you consider my recent photo OOF, and my impression from the first sentence of your response is, that it is kind of a revenge for the remark about the oxpecker. Well, OK, message received. --A.Savin 21:19, 6 April 2018 (UTC)
The sulphur part does not seem in focus to me. If some of it is liquid or gaseous, that would explain the blurring at 1/125 sec. If it's all solid then I have no idea of the cause. It's not revenge - I just decided to look closely at your image since you were so rude about mine. My assessment is objective. 21:25, 6 April 2018 (UTC)
I actually thought, every image nominated on FPC should be looked closely at, not only mine and not only when I recently was rude with one of yours. Especially your own image before nominating it. (I look closely at all my images I consider nominating.) The oxpecker could have looked much better with proper process, it simply deserves better process.
Btw, there is running water on the formation, so no surprise that it looks not as pinsharp as a building. Rather unfair to call it OOF, though. --A.Savin 21:49, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

Only you can. You send a mail to OTRS that originates from a mail address that can be linked to you, for example an address on your domain or that is listed on your website. A note of some kind (like in User:OGPlanet) should be on your user page afterwards. OTRS does have a long backlog so this could take several weeks. - Alexis Jazz 14:48, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
