Hi Ori,
I like the contrast achieved with a flash, it sets the flower nicely apart from the environment. In your "Photo info" it says "Flash did not fire".
Are the granules flower buds or unripe fruits? The wilted leaves suggest the latter.
My best regardes, Dietrich

Hi Ian,

your exotic (for me, a Swiss) pictures from Tasmania on TN are a great joy. I also wish to make you a compliment on the extensive notes. Please continue to publish material on TN.

My best regards, Dietrich

Hi Laurens,
you are seeking perfection! Your long familiarity with the mediterranean fauna shows too. The combination of both is irresitible !
Thanks Laurens for the presentation of many Buprestids on TN and for your instructive workshops.
Chapeau and Greetings to you, Laurens Dietrich

Hi Luciano,
very good, a first time on TN! I admire your way that you identify the Geometridae species. I use the "Guide des papillons nocturnes de France" (R. Robineau et al. 2007) but the pictures are small and I spend hours guessing.
My best regards to you, Luciano.

Dear Laurens,

I like your Oil beetle, you got it in focus from head to tail ! I found a web site for ID of Meloƫ: http://www.coleo-net.de/coleo/texte/meloe.htm. With this list of European species I arrive at Meloƫ proscarabaeus (L.). largely due to the nicked antenna, the black colour and the body proportions.

I did some work in the late 60ties on raising

Hi Luciano,
it is very good and you know it certainly. What if you lower the Colour temperature? Maybe the butterly would even more stand out with its interesting colours. And maybe this is a matter of taste and of the reigning light condition. Just a thought.
I wish you a pleasant weekend ! Dietrich

Hi Hasan,
now I know that Peonia is out in the wild in your part of the country, beautiful ! I have only one problem with the picture, you turned it sidewise. It is also quite clear why you did it, the TN site does not present pictures in portrait position well. A way out would be to show the same picture on your own website and make a link in the note of the TN picture. It works, I tried it (see ). It is explained summarily in "About/ FAQ/ 12".
Greetings, Dietrich

Hi Biswarup,
I like your White throated Kingfisher a lot because it's an "unusual" shot from behind and somewhat below, the sun behind you. Good ! In this way the brilliant blue colours dominate. The only small problem is the focus which is not on the eye. Thanks for presenting the wonderful bird. Greetings, Dietrich

Hi Luciano,
as you say: always nice to see ... You got the moth completely flat, so you go to 1/800 sec and f/4 in normal daylight. Good result!
Best regards, Dietrich
