"Wing Span" (found in nature, on the ground, trees etc, stretching,)

(Please only photos of birds stretching while on the ground or in the trees)

________________________________

"Wing Span" (found in nature, on the ground, trees etc, stretching,)

the thread has evolved -

despite the mention of "birds", we are not limiting this to only the wing spans of birds, other appropriate photos of natural wing spans of animals or insects would be welcomed.

I am posting the description of the photos we are looking to include in the thread just to remind folks and new visitors of its intent. The intent is not to compete with the BIF thread.

cross posting of photos is welcomed. There are a lot of threads in the forums where you can choose to post your photos and we want this to be one of them.


Thanks to the contributions and to those just looking

Repost of one of mine from my *istD.

Sea Eagle in either southern Tasmania or south west West Australia (Esperance or Albany). I'll have to think about where I took it - or wait until I get home so I can check the HDD directory.

Using 4" X 4" beams supporting nest as reference it is estimated that the wingspan is between 5 and 6 feet

Poor image........poor wingspan!
Well it is (they are) a Duck(s). Why the Duck showing off his wingspan is a bit lacking is one for the experts, I can only conjecture that it is either and escaped domestic Duck or a Mutant! Or maybe a juvenile that thinks it's fashionable to be so little endowed.
Is it a Mallard? https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Mallard/id added as per the suggestion from the original poster.
Taken at Riverside Park, Southampton, England and yes we do have Ducks with wings bigger than that though I doubt we can compete with the Ducks over the water.

I couldn't get the whole wing span in because I was using a 70-300mm lens and was standing too close.

I was just going on Thematic "Wingspan"...
Yes, but you need to read which wingspan the OP is asking anyone to post.

Same with any "Thematic" thread. Every one has different rules.

We mention in the thread that it's the wrong type of photo. A moderator can delete the photo if the OP (you) request it. But otherwise, it's up to the Original Poster what happens to other members photos who post out of turn.

Btw, I like this theme. I have several more photos of the theme but will have to hunt them down.

"those who live in glass houses should not throw stones"

personally I was taught not to make mistakes, but to have "learning experiences" and not be dumb enough to repeat the "learning experiences"

I am a slow learner.

so I won't ask to have it removed, unless the poster wants to have it done.

I edited the title of the thread to try to clean up any confusion.

I'm not sure who that was aimed at, but as a Moderator I'm allowed to speak up about misplaced photos. LOL

Member Halide will have to make that decision on deletion or not.

People who don't read rules, tend to bug me.

I was addressing the fact that some folks say I make a lot of mistakes

I say I have lots of "learning experiences"

definitely a comment on me, not anyone else

New members make mistakes but I haven't seen where you have made that many. One has to learn and being able to learn and being human, we do make mistakes......even when we're old hats on this forum or any other online place to hang our hats.

Personal request:

I always like to learn and I, for one, would love it if posters to this thread could identify the species in the photos and location where it was taken

Don't worry if you can't or don't want to do so, we still will enjoy your excellant work

Thank you

Any photo I post in here links back to my flickr account and if clicked on, will give you the species name. The above goose is a "Swan Goose" and was taken at a local river park.
