There are filters in place that trap the Hit and Run spammers, you should be OK to post the photos now.

If you're using Windows XP, a quick way to compress the photo is by opening it up in paint (right click>edit) and simply saving it. If it's still too large, or if you use a Windows 7, Ubuntu, or Mac, you could crop it and upload it here.
Another option is uploading it to flickr, photobucket, or imgur and then pasting the link here. If you've uploaded it to facebook, you can post the link here as long as you right click on the image and select "Open image in New tab" and then pasting that link here. Like so:

That's a Northern Flicker, Yellow-shafted form. They're a type of woodpecker. Nice!

Lol, that is so ironic because the site the photo is on is called Flickr, and that bird is a Fli--yeah whatever... :lol:

Good timber does not grow with ease:

The stronger wind, the stronger trees.

The further sky, the greater length,

The more the storm, the more their strength.
