these are surprisingly difficult to shoot because of their activity and the predominant blackness. You did very well !
Have a good (cool) day, Dietrich
...must go to Levkada myself, seems to be an entomologist's Paradise ... Bur looking at your other presentations, you found other hotspots, like Kreta and Kerkyra. The important thing is still the man, that takes interest in all the living things and for good photography. Thanks, Laurens, for your series of minicritters ...
you are always surprising us TN watchers with butterflies we never saw before. Here is a good example. The picture is well composed, you know your trade very well.
Have a good day, my friend, Dietrich
yes, the Geometridae hold a lot of surprises for us photographers. But this one beats everything I knew. You keep us wondering what advantage this kind of coloration holds for the species. But that is the idea of TN, to keep us wondering. Thanks for this one, Luciano!
Have a nice day my friend, Dietrich
a wasp that goes to sleep in a ball, who has seen that before ! Thank you for your many instructive workshops that go with your presentations. I try to learn from you: you must use a screened flash or a ring flash to have this diffuse illumination so important for metallic looking insects.
The Swiss painter and entomologist Walter Linsenmaier depicted many Chrysididae and Buprestidae. When I was a boy his drawings fascinated me and made me interested in beetles and in taking macros. You bring memories back, Laurens !
a high class bird portrait, and of a species that is difficult to approach. What I like also is the light from the side and the homogenous background. My compliments!
Have a good day, Dietrich
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
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
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
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
