Porsupah with camera

Say cheese!

I noticed Uwe Skrzypczak's excellent wildlife photography book was free the other week, and had to wonder just how to pronounce his name. And lo, didst skawinski kindly supply a genuine pronunciation as a brief MP3. ^_^

And if you're quick, you'll just make it in time for djinni's festive Yule Icon Day! (Edit: that's it for this time!)

Here, have a quick little poll. ^_^ I'm curious to find out how popular photography is with everyone here.
