Two extremely rare marbled teal slowly cruising across one of the lagoons at El Clot de Galvany. Had to be heavily cropped due to filesize restrictions. Given its rarity it is a wonder they are so easily seen here

A wonderful find for you Gleb. And a fantastic picture you've taken of them too lad.

I'm not sure what the file size restrictions are now (I've a feeling they're much increased from the previous platform), but you shouldn't need to 'crop' to get there, just adjust the quality when you save the image. at the editing stage.

Thanks! This was the only one which was too big, and to be honest I understand why as it had a lot of detail in it

They certainly look like identical twins and a great double capture!
 
I am fairly certain the maximum file size has been drastically reduced. It seems to be below 2MB now. I can‘t find it documented anywhere. I also can‘t use BBC links anymore, which is a real pain as I never generate local jpegs.
