Hi Ram,
it's nice to see you still are active after all these years.
This is a real close-up of the head of flesh fly-
Well detailed , we can see the cells in the eyes and even the long tongue. Not an easy shot.
Maybe a bit dark but it's ok.
Well done, mf.

Hi Ron,
this is a very beautiful butterfly, the colours and pattern are amazing.
It's property seeking for minerals and salt on the ground.
The butterfly is deadly sharp and stand out nicely from the BG.

Well done,

Hi Bala,
a good picture of this spoonbill but for me its bit tight cropped in front of the bird, the picture is abit central otherwise is fine with good exposur, good white balance and decent sharpness.
It's niceto see details in the white parts.

Hi Ram,
just poped in and saw this fine picture of the Jumping spider.
Well handle with the fill-flash, it looks natural, not like a contrast flash photo, really nice to see.
Also DOF is good, the most important parts, eyes, head and front legs are in very good focus.
Well done, old friend.

Hello Old friend, long time no see .
I just popped in and what did I see, a amazing picture taken by a smartphone, the male of a orange tip is one of the most difficult butterflies to get in the early spring time, they always flying around, never sit until they found a female. I take my hat off. :-)
Nice sharp with natural colours, stands out nicely from the soft BG.
Well done Peter

The combination of colours in this image is truly very eye-cathing. Black and white always look great together, but the little bit of red of the swans beaks adds to the beauty of this lovely serene picture. Best regards and thanks for sharing.

Hallo Ron
What a lovely caterpillar! I have never seen something like this in my life, not with my own eyes, nor in any kind of magazine or book. It is really spectacular, and it looks as if some old granny has knitted it a type of jacket. The details, colours and texture of this caterpillar is captured with excellent preciseness, making it a super macro.
Best regards and thanks for sharing.

Hi Marios,
a very fine picture of the Lapwing.
I like the low POW and the nice natural colours, even the sharpness is good.
But I'm not so sure about the composition, you need a lot more space in front of the bird for a good balance of the picture.
Nice to see a picture from Akrotiri, around the Salt lake I suppose.

Best regards
Gert

Ciao Luciano,
We have post the same species today but you didn't hesitate to disturb them in their private situation :-)Paparazzi :-)
Nice close up of the common blue pair, Good sharpness with fine details.
Even in this busy surroundings you manage to get a short nice DOF to isolate them from the BG.
Well done. old friend.
