Liebe Anne,
ein selten zu beobachtender, sehr berührender Moment, in zarten Farben und guten Details bei wenig Licht mit viel Geduld festgehalten.
Hatte genau dies vor Jahren an einem Seeufer in Kärnten sitzend an drei dicht benachbarten Stellen zugleich beobachtet. Dann kam das Linienschiff vom anderen Seeufer in der Nähe an, legte wieder ab, erzeugte hohen Wellengang am Ufer - und weggespült waren zwei der drei noch halb geschlüpften Libellen.
Die dritte entging mit Glück den Wellen, entfaltete endlich ihre Flügel, hob sich - noch etwas unbeholfen flatternd - in die Luft, es war bezaubernd. Nach vielleicht zehn Metern jenes Jungfernfluges kam plötzlich ein kleiner Vogel herangeschossen, schnappte die zarte Libelle in der Luft - und weg war auch diese. C'est la vie.
Wie stark Deine Bilder wirken und vergessene Erinnerungen wachrufen ...
Mit Dank und herzlichem Gruss aus dem subtropisch dampfenden, von Gewitterwolken verhangenen frühsommerlichen Wien,
Peter

Liebe Anne,
beeindruckend klare, schön komponierte, monumental wirkende Nahaufnahme dieser ungewöhnlichen Libelle. Deine Geduld hat sich gelohnt, das Ergebnis erfreut uns sehr.

Hello Srikumar,
really poetic. Lucky coincidence, very well seen, flawlessly skilfully captured.
A pleasure to see the warm and tender light, and the elegant colour contrast of pale blue and ochre. Thank you!
With best regards,

Ciao Luciano,
excellent exposure which is important to present Pieris species.
Very natural with respect to colours. That's what I like!
Best wishes, Peter

Dear Ram,
a very nice and sharp picture of this small Lycaenidae.
I like to see the details of the wing colour pattern and
also the fine details of the antennae.
Best wishes, Peter

Dear Muhammad,
I think that this is a beetle of the family Buprestidae,
probably from the genus Julodis.

Hello Ram,
a nice capture achieved by you but obviously not for the fly.
It's incredibly sharp with great depth of field. Fly and spider as well
as the parts of the flower are presented with superb sharpness.
Best wishes, Peter

Dear Ram,
flower and butterfly in pleasantly natural colours in front of a favourably drab coloured distant background - combined in a presentation of elegant composition: am outstanding contribution - thank you! Interesting to read your notes, and your concern about the decreasing number of African monarchs in your region at this time of the year.

Hello Ram,
a nicely different approach to the tiny and colourful Red Pierrot from a well chosen point of view. I like the composition with the slightly diagonal leaf as a tablet of presentation. Thank you! With best regards,

such a tiny little bug nymph, looking very fragile, soft and tender. Well presented super-macro images. The "other" one in the workshop with the side view is my favourite.

Phantastic image and well written recommendation to visit, Giorgos. I love hidden and little known places like that.
Hopefully, they will not become as well known as Plitvice lakes and falls in Croatia where visitors are walking on the paths tightly jammed in queues.
Thank you! With best regards,

Muhammad,
up to me to be there with my mouth open: superb capture of a fascinatingly shaped and coloured blossom of one of the Lamiales (?), an eye catcher, indeed. Looking foward to reading our experts' identification.
Thank you! All the best,

Dear Ram,
well observed in the extreme heat of dry early summer in India, and skilfully portrayed in an emotionally touching way, that sleepy garden lizard does not fail to have my sympathies ;)
Here in Central Europe, we and our fellow beings for the moment are just as sleepy - but because of unusually cool und humid weather ...
Thank you! With best regards,

Hello Ishi,
deliciously presented Ophrys blossoms, tenderly smooth, with perfectly clear details and pleasantly soft colours. A good finale of a highly instructive and beautiful series.
Ophrys season has just started here in the Eastern lowlands of Austria about two weeks ago - with Ophrys holoserica looking quite similar to O. episcopalis that is absent from Austria.
Thank you! With best regards,
Peter
