Good job.

Hi Bala,
a nice shot of these Lesser Flamingos, it's an amazing pink colours.
Decent sharpness, well exposed and nice natural colours, but as most of your pictures it's very tight,
leave a bit more space both in front and behind and it will look even nicer, just a hint.
Well done.

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 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.

as a moderator for TN I am sorry but your horse classes as domesticated as I think you will see from this excerpt for the book of Wiki.
The Konik is a Polish horse breed descending from very hardy horses from the Biłgoraj region. These horses had a predominantly dun colour, but also black and chestnut horses were present in the population.[4] Some researchers claim these foundation animals were hybrids with wild horse breeding that had been sold to farmers by the zoo in Zamość in 1806, which were bred to local domesticated draft horses.[4] However, genetic studies now contradict the view that the Konik is a surviving form of Eastern European wild horse, commonly called the tarpan, nor is it closely related to them. The Konik shares mitochondrial DNA with many other domesticated horse breeds and their Y-DNA is nearly identical.[5][6]

During World War I, these horses were important transport animals for Russian and German troops and were called Panje horses.[4] In 1923, Tadeusz Vetulani, an agriculturalist from Kraków, started to get interested in the Panje horses, a landrace of Biłgoraj and coined the name “Konik” (Polish for “small horse”), which is now established as the common name for the breed. During the 1920s, several public and private studs were created to conserve this animal.[4] In 1936, Vetulani opened a Konik reserve in the Białowieża Forest. He was convinced that if horses were exposed to natural conditions, they would redevelop their original phenotype.[4] While Vetulani's experiments are well-known and widely publicized,[7][8] his stock actually had only a minor influence on the modern Konik population.[4] However, World War II marked the end of Vetulani’s "breeding back" project. His stock was moved to Popielno, where they continued to live in semiferal conditions. Popielno became the breed’s main stud during the 1950s, but the herd was also preserved by buying animals from Germany.[4]

Between the two world wars, the German brothers Heinz and Lutz Heck crossed stallions of Przewalski's horse with mares of the Konik horse, as well as mares of other breeds such as the Dülmen pony, Gotland pony, and the Icelandic horse, to create a breed resembling their understanding of the tarpan phenotype. The result is called the Heck Horse.[9] Other breeders crossed Koniks with Anglo Arabians or the Thoroughbred to increase their quality as a riding horse.[4]

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

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.
