great headshot, great focus, on this hawk-moth ! It takes patience and skill , not just good equipment to do this. Congratulations!
one of your really good bird shots, this White-throated Kingfisher. I have seen this bird in Turkey, thanks to your contribution and the instructive note (thanks !) I know now that its distribution is really wide.
a wonderful composition, the right contrast despite the black-and-white object and a bee never seen before, my compliments. How do you identify the many mediterranean species you have presented on TN?
such a beautiful hopper and a shot well taken in a remote region, but I couldn't find a name to it. The closest I came up with is Poecilimon scythicus (Shchelkanovtsev, 1911) but I have doubts. Neighbouring Turkey alone has 60 species of the genus Poecilimon! Sorry I couldn't help. Cheers, Dietrich
I discovered your Scarce Swallowtail from Tunisia after your remarks on my post. Great, your picture is a wonder!
you didn't get the attention you deserved for this awesome shot, Ron. How the bird stands out from the drab background ! And the technical stuff mastered so well. Chapeau!
Thanks for your remarks on my beetle. Yes, there is at least one similar species in the Eastern Mediterranean, Sepidium tricuspidatum
Best regards, Dietrich
you top it again! I don't have to tell you why it's such a good shot. I always like your instructive notes. Thanks for looking at my modest pictures.
Best regards, Dietrich
10 points on the Richter scale for daring shots! I know how you feel, I also tried with this Mourning Cloak, in vain. But I had never the courage of presenting the picture on TN.
Thanks for this! Dietrich
I appreciate this picture because Brintesia are nervous animals, it's difficult to focus on them, more difficult to compose a picture. You did it, praise on you. I like your careful comments.
You also presented many pictures from Georgia which I have visited twice as a bicyclist. To get the good pictures of Lycaenidae and Co. you must have carried heavy equipment along.
Thanks for your comments on my pictures, my best regards, Dietrich
you don't have to be instructed on what's great about this picture, you know exactly what you are doing. The light! The background! The composition!
