Hi Shrikumar,
I am struck by the length of the flamingo's neck. Have seen a number of this species in captivity and don't recall any with such a long neck. The orange/pink of the feathers underneath seems almost to glow. Well done - regards, Greg.

Hi Bala,
Tight crop, but you captured the entire bird and its reflection. Birds in flight are always a challenge. Well done.
Regards,
Greg

Hi Gert,
Tack sharp macro of the hawk-moth. I have seen these a few times in this part of the world, but have not had a camera in hand. Shutter speed of 1/1250 was able to freeze all but the wings.

Regards,
Greg

Hi Ron,
Thanks for posting this. We are losing a lot of trees in southern Ohio to this species, but this the first image I have seen of one. The workshops are excellent as well. Excellent sharpness and composition. Workshop image #2 shows us the scarlet abdomen of this beautiful but damaging insect. Regards, Greg.

Hi Ron,

It's been a while since I visited TN. Tack sharp shot of the pipevine. In my experience, this species is more than a little skittish. Glad it decided to light for a while.

Hello Anna,
I think many photographers live for moments like these where we can see unusual behaviors. Your choice of speed was fast enough to freeze the heads and bodies while allowing the flapping wings to reveal the real "action" of the scene.
Regards.

Hi Ron,
The male is pin sharp against the soft background. The colors on the males are spectacular.

Regards.

Hello Aneta,
Interesting species - I have seen very few millipedes and this one is very colorful. Focus is very sharp on the head, but I would prefer a bit more depth of field since the focus becomes soft after about 10 segments.
You may have not had much choice to stop down the aperture, but that would have improved the shot in my opinion.
Regardless, I like the shot and appreciate your post and note.
Regards,
Greg

Hello Anna,
Congratulations on your 100th post. It's a beauty. The texture of the exoskeleton is unique - have not seen anything quite like it.
Regards,
Greg

Hello Laurent,
Cute little hedgehog. Very natural setting - it appears you did not frighten him when getting this shot.
Regards,
Greg
