Hi Geoffrey,
you were lucky with this shot, you caught the animal with the characteristic orange teeth! While swimming, the shoulder part of the body remains under water. And you were right with your pun, it's an American in Paris, the Nutria or Coypu (Myocastor coypus) has its origin in Southern South America. And you are right too, it was bred in Europe for its fur. Escaped animals established colonies in the wild but severe winters take their toll (I owe you, Wikipedia).
Thanks for the interesting contribution. Best regards, Dietrich

Hello Luciano,
I am pleased that you don't ignore the Geometridae in your incredible collection of excellent butterfly shots. They are often small and reveal their elegance only after taking a macro shot. Thanks for sharing and the very useful comment, and thanks for your comment on my Crane fly.
Ciao, Dietrich

Hi Ron,
how you do it is your secret: getting that close to those small warblers. Yes, I understood that you are a patient birdwatcher and a good photographer. The result is wonderful. Thanks for the useful note and for commenting on my Dipteran.
With my best wishes, Dietrich

Hi Ram,

good to see you in full force :-) The shot of the Jewel bug in the shadow is just incredible. It's even a demonstration of what the colours might be for: to shine even under dark conditions. Compliments. Thanks for commenting my Dipteran!

Hi Srikumar,
what should I say to your incredible collection of wildlife shots like this one? It's just awesome! Thanks for commenting on my Dipteran!

Bonjour Pierre,
l'image de l'animal est très réussi, t'as pris la peine de t'agenouiller et de faire un "tête à tête". Tu avais utilisé un flash (reflex dans l'oeil). Chapeau!
A mon opinion il ne s'agit pas d'un crapaud, mais de Discoglossus galganoi, un discoglosside connu seulement de l' Espagne. Signes: la paupière a la forme d'une goutte; on ne voit pas de tympan; il existe une bande à glandes depuis l'oeil jusqu'à lépaule. Ce qui dérange: il y a un raccourci téléscopique du corps, le museau semble trapu; la femelle doit être plein d'oeufs; il manque un triangle entre les yeux et la pointe du museau. Mais la variation dans la coloration semble énorme vu les images sur internet.
Amicalement, Dieter

Leibe Anne,
Du bist noch aktiv, und suchst den Frühling. Zum Bild teile ich ganz die Ansicht von kinglove:
很漂亮的花朵
這種色彩的對比很清滲人心
很有藝術的味道
照的很美 也很有故事
Hoffentlich kriegst Du das Rückenproblem in den Griff!
Herzlich grüsst Dich Dieter

Hi Ron,

it has been said before, it's a fantastic shot. You even got around the DOF problem with the big lense. I assume that you are a keen ornithologist too.
My congratulations! Dietrich

What a beauty, Luciano!
Thanks for this one. I hav'nt seen this species of Bee-eater before. Looking forward to your yield of pictures from Senegal!
Salute, Dietrich
