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.
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
another of your surprising and very well presented plants that few have the privilege to see and know.
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
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.
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
you got a very well captured Athalia rosae (L.) here, a small Sawfly. Tenthredinids are difficult to ID, I check with https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Species_of_Tenthredinidae. Thanks for participating on TN.
Best regards, Dietrich
such a fine, delicate little butterfly, this Wood White. Where I live the species is restricted to higher altitudes and not often seen.
Thank you for presenting it here, Silvio.
My best regards, Dietrich
great, this rain-soaked Redstart you present us. This species is not common where I live, the Black Redstart more so, which is essentially a mountain bird. Thanks. Greetings Dietrich
Lucky you, Silvio,
such a good shot. Your great expertise in things butterfly shows. And a new species for of us, recognised as such only since --- 2005! Thanks for presenting, greetings, Dietrich
