    Ho John: Would you be willing to donate your aesthetic image of the juvenile Gray Jay to my free online Birds of Vancouver Island that is located at my website?

      Ordinarily that would be no problem, except a few people have used photos on their web sites (both with and without permission) and then a Google image search displays my image with a link to their web site, so unless you can think of way around that…
