chick worthy of a sale!


posted on 23rd of may, 2011

I'm sure all of us have photos in our portfolios that we really like but no-one is buying. This is my first ever image accepted by DT and I think the cutest of my bird images.



I rescued this blue tit chick from our garden pond on his maiden flight and struggled to hold my camera in one hand whilst he balanced on the other. After he grumpily posed on my finger I put him on a tree branch to wait for his mum to collect him.

Am I the only one who thinks he's full of the 'aaaah' factor?


Soon it will have been on line for three years and due to be sent to the free section. There must be a discerning designer out there who thinks he's worth a few cents and will rescue him from such an ignominious end!

Which of your images has proved most disappointing?

The deed is done. Now the chick is no more grumpy on my desktop.

Sooo cute this baby! I have a similar story...:-)I saved a small bat with a broken wing from our swimming pool and after he stayed on my left arm more than 10 minutes...I made beautiful pictures and those pictures are selling so well in ********! I will upload them here too!

Nice story Corina, I look forward to seeing the pictures!

Nice history.... I really had great expectation of an image of 3 suriccatas that I considered real good, and after 3 years with no sales I donate it to the free section where it ha been downloaded 60 times (you can see it in my profile under free images.

I saw your image Enrique, really cute.

I like that grumpy look and I think I will go ahead and buy this one with the credit points that I have accumulated by writing blogs.
Do you know, young ones of birds are not at all afraid of human beings.

Joe that would be so kind! Your good deed for the day. I'd noticed that about young birds but I thought it was just me they liked!

I hope someone rescues him - again :) Here is my shot that has never sold. It was pretty early on in my stock photo 'career' and I was trying to get tricky ! I seem to recall spending a lot of time setting up pins and trying to get them falling - too bad I only had toy pins, or it might have some sales...
