Merhaba, Alperen,

what a beauty you have here ! You did a first rate job in photography, the light is such that the transparency of the wings adds to the interest, good composition, perfect background. You really should add a comment to your pictures, in Turkish maybe, so we learn something about the circumstances that led to this marvellous picture, about your equipment etc. Stay with us on TN !
Best regards, Dietrich

Hi Syed,
you succeeded where I failed in picturing a White eared (or White cheeked) Bülbül in the wild, my compliment. It is true, the species is not shy and makes itself heard a lot, but still. ... You even caught it calling !
Thanks for the presentation, greetings Dietrich

Hi Lousat,

the species that you present here may be dull-brownish but since the sunlight comes from the right side it lightens up the wings - traraah - a beauty. Your expertise shows.
Best regards, Dietrich

Hi Luciano,
you were right to show the species again. The composition and the lighting are exceptional, they make this butterfly look like a real Queen, standing out proudly. Evolution in racing mode! Have a nice weekend, Dietrich

Hi Dariusz,
great portrait, and with 1/80 sec exposure and 400 mm focus! The composition with a wonderful background makes me guess that you used a tripod and waited for the animal. But then, your other works suggest hand-held shots. Whatever, you know your stuff, congratulations.
Greetings, Dietrich

Hi Musa,
I'm not a botanist and unfortunately I don't know your region Quetta. The riddle you pose us is not easily solved. Could the fruit be from Platanus orientalis? The species occurs naturally from the Balkan to the Himalayas and has been spread even wider by man.
Thanks for your contribution. Greetings, Dietrich

Hi Ori,

another of your surprising and very well presented plants that few have the privilege to see and know.
Greetings, Dietrich

Hi Luciano,
great, this fiery Fritillary. Your note is very useful. I wonder wether the double row of points on the abdomen is also distinctif.
Thanks for your comment on the flying White, you seem to know by experience that automatic focussing is not useful for macros.
Have a good day, Dieter

Cher Roland,
j'ai vu trop tard que tu avais la même idée :-) Ton atterissage d'un Piéride est très bien photographié. Les ailes sont illuminées par le contre-jour, magnifique. Je sais maintenant que c'est difficile d'arriver à de telles images, mes félicitations.
Amitiés, Dieter

Hi Moz,
What a great job you did in presenting this tiny spider, complients.
You ask for help with ID. Here it is: in my opinion you caught a Nigma puella (Simon) male. It belongs to the family of Dictynidae. I used the "Collins Field Guide Spiders" by M.J. Roberts. You may be proud on your "First on TN" . I have never encountered a living specimen of the Dictynidae family. My best regards, Dietrich
