Hi Mike, Wow—your website is a good photo resource! I came across your shot of a Sooty Shearwater on Creative Commons.

See: - I was wondering if I could get permission to use it. I’m putting together a video on the environment for a museum in Toronto, Canada.

The shot would be used in a mosiac of animals on screen. Cheers! Kirk, Kirk Walker, Vista Collaborative Arts Inc., 1529 East 14th Avenue, Vancouver, BC V5N 2C9, Canada; kirk [at} vista-arts d o t com, Tel: +1.604.602.0589, Mobile: +1.604.785.0121 -
