A note about group requests

I wanted to make a note to people requesting my deviations to go into groups. There seems to be a lot of new groups popping up. I accept less than half of these requests for a number of reasons:

  1. I do like to somewhat control which groups my deviations go into.
  2. I prefer my deviations to go into groups related to birds, wildlife and nature; not general groups.
  3. The group name is unrelated to my deviation - for example, if the word "backyard" is in it, I will not accept a photo that was not taken in my yard to your group. I also will not allow my wild bird photos into a group with the word "pets" in it.
  4. There are many bird groups already, and I am unsure of why more have to be created, so I may not accept my deviation to go into your new group (sorry!!).

I love your photos, I have an Indian Ring neck Parakeet, he is the best bird. I can whistle some songs and he's learned them now. He can also meow.
Also, how did you like photographing foxes. I have been trying to find some but its pretty difficult. I get them on motion cameras, but I have never seen a wild fox in person.
