Liebe Anne,
erfrischend lebendiges Portrait dieses nicht immer scheuen, immer aber sehr flinken Baumbewohners, der es bei meinen Annäherungsversuchen immer verstanden hat, rasch auf die Kehrseite des Baumstammes zu verschwinden.
Lustig, seine Äuglein so lebensfroh funkeln zu sehen, voll Vorfreude auf die fette Nuss in seinem Mäulchen. Du verstehst es so prima, kleine Geschichten zu sehen und einzufangen, die uns die Abgebildeten als uns ganz nahestehende Geschöpfe ans Herz legen. Bei Menschen ohnedies - wo dieses Talent von Dir besonders zur Entfaltung kommt - und - wie auf dieser Seite oft zu sehen - auch bei Tieren.
Dass dieses Eichhörnchen von der Fotografin nicht verlangt, dass sie sich fürs Foto bücken muss, sehe ich als Zeichen seiner Höflichkeit. Ein echter Kavalier, dieses Hörnchen, belohnt mit Nuss und sehr gelungenem Portrait, an dem wir alle große Freude haben.
Und jetzt hol' ich mir auch eine Walnuss, Du hast mir Appetit gemacht.
Ganz herzliche Grüsse aus dem verregneten Wien nach Bern,
Peter

Ciao Luciano,
L. tityrus - not "sooty" at all - nicely seated among its food plants, presenting its colourful undersides of wings in a cheerfully sunny, well detailed picture. Lucky capture - and also quite early, this year. Thank you! With best regards,

monumental close approach with impressingly fine details and fine natural colours, the pale blue sky offering a well supporting background, very pleasant and subtle.

Hello Ram,
well approached, well detailed capture of the Red Pierrot showing its conspicous upper side´s of wings - colourful, simple, and clear.
Just wondering if the composition might further profit by tilting the original image by approximately 25 degrees conterclockwise rotation and recropping to make the butterfly "look into" the image.
Cheerfully nice image showing us that little juwel of your country's wonderful nature, spreading good feelings of fresh spring.
Always a pleasure to look into your rich portfolio filled with lively observations of Indian nature.
With thanks, and best regards,
Peter

Hello Marius,
nature in our countries seems to be well synchronised: in the meadows near to my home, I noticed the first Orange tips on April 3 this year.
A lovely, nicely clear and well detailed presentation, with subtle details and well managed colours - hard to capture. A pleasure to see. Thank you.
With best greetings,

wonderful in-flight capture in attractive backlight.

Hello Jiri,
a most impressive close-up of the shy Large Bee Fly with amazing details, beautiful natural colours in attractive sunny light. Tightly framed but nicely composed. Just wondering if this insect was seated there with its wings at rest for a moment. A rather rare observation, I suppose, as I usually see them hovering in front of blossoms like humming birds. Or did you take the shot with ultra high speed shutter, freezing the wings in motion so pefectly? With thanks, and best regards,
Peter

brilliantly clear capture of the Eros Blue drinking water, taken in the hard sun of summer in the mountains with perfect details and amazingly well managed natural colours - so nice to be so close and on eye to eye level with Çokgözlü Eros Kelebeği. Thank you!

Hello Luciano,
here you have combinded a portrait of colourful Merops pusillus resting in elegant pose on broken wood - residing over a field of equally colourful Crassulaceae - to an image of outstanding beauty.
A strongly detailed background of similar colour may often be considered a noisy background to be avoided, but here with this very special kind of background noise has turned into music: a symphony of very pleasant colours in rhythmic shapes.
A wonderful dedication to Peter Van Zoest.
Thank you! With best regards,
Peter

Liebe Anne,
ein ganz wunderbar lebendiges, schön komponiertes Porträt der scheuen Pupillée. Aus bester Position abgelichtet, sind feinste Details von Flügeln und Körper erstklassig wiedergegeben.
Diesem eindrucksvoll großen Augenfalter bin ich in Österreich noch nie begegnet. Er scheint bei uns zu fehlen. Ich erinnere mich heute noch gut, ihn vor vielen Jahren bei Wanderungen am Grächener Höhenweg im Wallis gesehen zu haben.
Mit Dank und herzlichem Gruss aus Wien,
Peter

Ciao Silvio,
che pronto! Submitted the same day of spring as it was taken, and the day is not over yet - served to the table fresh from the oven: Aurora ragazzo so nicely seated on violets. A very restless butterfly, hard to capture, and also not easy to avoid overexposure on white scales. You did it perfectly well in a sunny picture of strictly rectangular composition reminding me of Art nouveau. Seen the first ones this year also in Vienna a few days ago, but they never sat down yet. So better looking in at TN for not missing out the pleasures of la primavera.
Grazie, ciao - Peter

a rare and lucky coincidence to find a velvet beetle seated so nicely on that hair flower of a Mariposa lily.
Shapes and details of both flower and beetle are well shown and nicely described here. Thank you!

Hello Pedro,
your clear and well detailed capture of a hairstreak is a fine demonstration of "false head" markings apparently working well. The butterfly seems to have escaped a predator's attack that was successfully directed against the end of its tailed hind wings instead of its real head. Now the butterfly is still enjoying its life with tails off, and it also allows us to see a glimpse of its bright blue upper side of wings at resting position. Thank you!
With best regards,
Peter
