Oh James i wish i had more time to spend in nature ...i am out any chance i get and i just made my 500th the other day ...I agree with you Neil...its all about the spotting ...and being able to see what others have in their part of the world , it just fascinates me :)

No life? James, if you can pick up a camera and spend quality time in nature, that's more than many have time to do. Time is such a valuable resource, so you sound blessed to me. As far as great pics go, I think yours are awesome. Mine aren't great, but they're adequate. Besides, as I was told when first joining the site, the most important thing is the spotting, not the photo. Professionals can get great photos, but neither of us are that. Besides, if I want to look at great pics, I'll pick up a NG magazine. If I want to share someones spotting experience, there are some great stories on PN. I'm still blown away by 6000 spottings. I'm fretting on being able to reach my 500th. Can't see any further than that.

Thank you Albert Hema Sukanya Charlie and Neil. Neil I am no legend just have no life. I know many of my images are not great quality compared to many posted by others but I love the nature around me and when a picture excites me I just share it. Thank you all for your kindness and support. I am always in awe of the beautiful images you post and look forward to thousands more.

Congratulations, James. An incredible milestone. I reckon I'll be into my 70's by the time I reach 6000 spottings. You're a legend :-)
