Now that is fantastic. Superb plumage detail in every frame. It really does make a huge difference to the credibility of the show.

Now I'm going to be nagging you about the specifications of your website that allow you to show footage of that image quality! What are the secret formulae of your website, Per Johan?

I liked the quality of this video and could see that you put much effort into approaching them without causing alarm. If you allow your videos on Vimeo to be downloaded, other registered members can view the full quality of your source upload, in the format you used. None of the heavy Vimeo compression is applied when you download them, using the button at the lower-right corner. If you do a right-click on the button, and then click on Save Target As, you can designate a folder on your computer and save the download for repeated viewings.

Per Johan,
You are absolutely a genius. I'm drooling all over my keyboard.

The more I see this film the more I, as a grandfather, appreciate the majesty and seduction of mating. This beauty is conveyed here by the producer as well as by the birds. Elsewhere on DVInfo, anthropomorphism, is the word to describe what we do when we use words about human behaviour to describe animal behaviour; for a good example (but bad image quality through car window) see "Partridge is not amused" (which is a misquote from Queen Vic.) http://birdcinema.com/view_video.php...18e86dac21d360

I wonder what the word is to describe how some human behaviour could be improved, even civilised, by studying some animal behaviour?

I'm not suggesting that this is an original question; I am stating that Per Johan's videographic and production skills have combined to raise this question in my mind. This adds to my enjoyment of the film. The comments made by Annie, Helen, Ruth and Mat also help me to appreciate the selection of shots used by Per Johan. I'm learning; yippee!
