Scientific names are important to confirm the ID of a species accurately, and on here they allow other pics of the same species to be shown.
They are easy to get: Just add the English name and then press 'Get recommended'...hey presto! the scientific name appears.
Try it with this one.
My Flickr photos...
Can't see where it is in the photo. Can you give me any indication of it's location in the tree please?
on the branch in the middle of the photo
Absolutely in the middle...typical LO shape...you can see it with the naked eye.
I see where you mean. Although it does rather look like a tree branch that's catching the sun light.
I forgot to say that we had seen this bird in a tree earlier on in the day and we saw it fly into this tree and i took a photo.
Okay, I'll believe you. Although I still can't see it myself, even through binoculars! ;)
... know you can click the photo which will bring a little popup box with a slightly larger version of the photo and the title at bottom left. Do you know if you click the title (it turns brown if you hover the mouse over it - be careful to ensure you are actually covering the words) a full size image is downloaded in a separate window? If you do this the owl is quite unmissable.
I saw it finally! Thanks for the tip re: enlargement of the image. I brought the enlarged version up and then I zoomed it. The sunlit branch I had previously seem miraculously changed into a little owl! I'm so pleased. I thought I was going mad at one point.
I've been using this system for about a year and I also did not realise that you could further enlarge the photo by clicking the 'brown' title on the enlarged photo pop-up box. I've wondered several times how it was that some responders could see, and comment on, detailed features that I couldn't make out. Now I know - many thanks for the tip!
Glad to be of service.
