That's big time calendar material. Where exactly is this? I want to go where ever this is. How close do you live to this swamp? Try loading your photos one at a time. I think your fancy new camera has too many pixels. My new camera is 12 point something so I've been reducing photos before I load em. I didn't have any problems with the old 5 mega pixel camera unless there were problems with WG.

I have been having problems loading multiples in for quite some time....
I used to be able to load 4 in at a time ... Now I must sit here, two three times longer loading only 1-2 in at a crack...
HOPEFULLY they can tweak the loading problems once the more important things have been taken care of...

Thanks for the thoughts, girls~ I do shoot mostly 12 mp for anything close, dropping to 8 or lower for longer-range subjects like peregrines. If 12mp is an issue here, WG better uppgrade to accommodate these higher megapixels because all the newer cameras are using 12 as a min now and up to 22-24mp. When I shoot, I'm shooting for myself, my blogs, Flickr, other nature photography sites too. I'm finding like havalotta, pix are needing to be uploaded by ones or twos recently. Not acceptable. I cannot or will not drop the megapixels for my photography, when they are perfectly acceptable for uploading elsewhere. When WG had serious issues earlier this year, I simply had to stop posting pix to WG. Sad but true. I do not have the time to spend sitting and waiting and then getting the &#^ "token" message. I'll try to get more pix up now.

Lib, the swamp is located in Clarence NY. It is a fair sized area now, under DEC and state control. Trails, lakes, swamps, birds, etc. I used to bring my kids there in the sixties before it was a protected area.

Tried to upload just 2 pix - no luck, got this familiar error message:

Quote:
Your submission could not be processed because a security token was missing.
If this occurred unexpectedly, please inform the administrator and describe the action you performed before you received this error.
So admins, be aware, pix cannot be uploaded even 2 at a time.

I have a lot of Tillman Swamp pix, will be getting more over next month, plus Alabama Swamps for migration pix. I'll have to upload them elsewhere and just post a link if this problem persists.

Also planning to go to the Catskills for a week, and return by way of Sapsucker Woods at Cornell. Lib and Di, want to come along? My son has a two-story, four-bedroom house embedded into the mountain at Lanesville. They don't live there though. We can go into Woodstock on the weekend where they have a free-wheeling drumming circle going on, and Queen Ester (Eostare, Astarte) and her husband, Grandpa Woodstock.

Maybe it matters what time of the day or how many are active on the sight?
I know.... It does get frustrating.... I gave up loading more than 1-2 at a time. Lad any more and you end up with zilch and have to do it all over again. Worse yet...get fed up and not put it in at all.

Wow, this must be one of the few local natural spots I'm not aware of. Looks neat!
