Not sure why Tapatalk made those original size.  I will redo.  I normally select small.  Must be the default for multiples.

Agreed, those are my favorites.  I'm working on one now in photoshop where I got a hummer between myself and the sun. It's more of an art project than an actual photo. I mean it is a photo but will be heavily processed.

In all my years of shooting I've only had a handful of shots that didn't need some tweaking. What lands in the camera is, usually, just the start of the finished project.  As you can see I got EXTREMELY lucky here.

Love those hummers.  Theyíre sure hard to catch with a camera.  I like the silhouette look.

Great seagull picture, Don.  Yeah, every once ins awhile you get lucky.  I got this funny series of a tern last year.  It was sort of like ďOk, Mr., I landed for the picture, now hurry up and take the picture.  Oh man, you waited too long and I gave up.Ē

Now it makes more sense.     Thanks for the re-do.  Nice pics.

Don and Greg yours as well.

Great pictures indeed.  I so often feel like the one in Greg's last picture.  Sometimes it is just too much bother to stay standing ... gravity takes over.  LOL

Speaking of birds,  This summer's crop of Osprey are getting bigger very fast.  Not too long from now when they will start learning to hover and fly.  Three eggs appeared this year and all three hatched.  Here is the web cam address that watches them.  https://www.novascotiawebcams.com/en/webcams/ospreycam/

Thatís a beautiful bird! Never seen a tern before.

This is a photobomb by a dove.... I took this at Disney Springs a couple of years ago.

Pete and I have been spending a LOT of time of the deck this pandemic spring/summer.  Iíve been getting some great hummingbird opportunities.  This was early in the spring and not one of our regulars.  Was a traveler.

This one was pure luck. Not the sharpest picture so I started editing.   Obviously not as colorful to my naked eye but with Snapseed this is the result I liked.

I was trying to get a selfie of me and a hummingbird.   I found this on the speed burst all by itself.  Lol my selfie skills are terrible.

That is an amazing shot, Maggie!  You donít often get a photo of a hummer in flight with the sun behind its spread out wings.  I guess thatís outspread wings.

This is for Greg or anyone else...  how to upload via a browser from a desktop, laptop, etc etc...even via mobile browsers like iPad etc.

I have medium selected in the pictures below you can probably do large with no real issues.  I uploaded this via my laptop and made smaller than I wanted. Greg I emailed you pictures larger.

Doing this will not allow you to align them under a text but dumps them all at the end bottom of the post.  I use to be able to align position but that isn't working.  I'm to lazy to search through the code as to why not, sorry.

Greg, take a look at Tapatalk App it's a forum browser that has a built in uploader.  Select medium option on files when uploading :-)  There a slight learning curve but Tapatalk is easy once you learn it.

I am still confused.
