With the way the weather is going may be a tough one again this month! Since seeing a single large red 9 days ago, I havent seen a thing. And looking back at last year's photos, I saw common blue, azure and a lot of large red damselflies, some demoiselles and four-spotted chasers in the first week of May - not looking good for this week if the temperature doesnt improve. Now if it had been insects again... :grin:

That's why we've relaxed the conditions - it's ok to submit one you took last year. So come on everyone. It's only a bit of fun, you get a virtual medal on your avatar, and you could have the undying admiration of your UKD peers for a whole month!  :shocked:

Is it possible to upload a competition image using the img facility, or have i got to start resizing images for attachments again, which is a pain. I tried it a moment ago, but got an error message.  :sad:

Oh, thanks for that!  :angry: We've yet to get anything in the way of dragons/damsels around here - not even in the more sheltered or lower valleys/dales.  :headwall:  But I guess they'll probably make an appearance sometime this month - not really fussed as it's a great month for plenty of other things!  :wink:

You should be able to link to images using [img ] your image url [/img ] (without spaces) or use the picture icon (above the  :smiley:  smiley)

Please upload competition pictures to the Gallery  LINK

The only restriction is a file upload size of 2MB. The server will resize the image to a longest side of 1024pixels (if larger).

Cheers

The child/sub forum called Competition entries will display pic's that are added to the comp Gallery, trying a new feature of the gallery out, sorry for any confusion.

Please post photo's to the months competition gallery as usual.

Thanks
