Hi Srikumar,
I was hoping for exactly such a picture from a Widow Bird: its long tail ondulating in flight, you caught it so well, congratulations. In the iconography of the Egyptian Old Empire you find winged and feathered Snakes. I always saw in this an allusion to Widow birds (don't take it serious, I'm no egyptologist).
Greetings, Dieterich

Lieber Peter,
wenn Luciano Dich auf deutsch beglückwünscht, dann ist dies etwas Besonderes. Ich schliesse mich ihm gerne an. Da ist zunächst die perfekte Wiedergabe der Weisstöne. Dann Dein Gespür für das Licht. Ich habe auch auf Deine Ausrüstung geschielt, obwohl Du durchaus fähig wärst, auch mit einer löchrigen Konservenbüchse noch gute Ergebnisse zu erzielen :-)
Ich war mit dem Fahrrad im Juni 2015 in Stepantsminda und habe mich über die ziemlich abgeweidete Natur gewundert. In den Seitentälern wie Sno wurde es dann lieblich. Parnassius wäre mir wohl aufgefallen, dafür blühten die weissen und gelben Alpenrosen.
Mit herzlichem Gruss, Dieter

Hi Luciano,
I first didn't want to comment on this butterfly that I am familiar with. Then I read your note. This was really instructive and interesting. So with much humility but also pleasure I add my points.
Greetings, Dietrich

Hi Ram,
my first reaction to this shot was, I am ashamed to say, to look for flaws. Please forgive me, it was in a spirit of learning from the others. But then I read your note and I realised how difficult it all was. So let me tell you how much I appreciated your careful note, added to the pleasure of looking at this beautiful parakeet.
Greetings, Dietrich

Hi Ori,
thanks for your presentation of this showy desert tulip in its natural setting. When I was bicycling around Eilat (Elifaz, Timna) in April last year I did not see any tulips. Maybe this was too late. Not being a botanist did not help.

Hi Ram,
wow, not only you are lucky but we too from TN, so see this species with all the color and iridescence. And a schoolground for background, who would have thought that this could work. One mor hurrah for this Sony compact you used. My compliments, Ram.
Greetings, Dietrich

Hi Srikumar,
the light was on your side, the god of photography also ! Wonderful shot. I wondered about the name, we find another Cisticola in Europe.

Hi Ram,
I see what you mean, the gleam in the eye of the dove ... Being a beginner in bird photography, I try to apply some rules that I learned and I notice that you have assimilated the same rules long ago. Good angle of view. Too little DOF but ok. You see, I learn!
Thanks and greetings, Dietrich

Hi Mushtashan,
you caught the right moment, I know that this is very difficult to do. All the head, all the water. You did well to choose 1/800 as setting, the sharpness depends on short exposure time.
Thanks and greetings, Dietrich

Hi Ori,
you have the eye of an expert to find such innocuous plants. And then, o wonder, they turn out to be really interesting under your macro lens. Excellent shot, Ori
Thanks, Dietrich
