Dearest Cathy,

A great idea to show the ''dancing'' Jumping Spider in a collage!

Each individual photo with excellent focus/detail, and the natural colours make it a magnificent document!

Thank you for showing on TrekNature.

Enjoy the rest of your day
Warm Greetings
Ingrid

Dear Peter,
Great photo of this Buffalo cooling down - at midday in December - when probably you could have done with a cooling bath as well :-))

He looks quite bad tempered!! As you say in your notes, the Oxpecker is a welcome bonus, adding interest as well as a spot of colour.

I like your photo very much - however I agree with Frans - a little correction to the exposure would make it even better!!

I guess the reflection of the water in the midday sun / dark mass of buffalo upset your calculation of exposure.

Your interesting notes (left female right male ??) impress on the reader, how dangerous Buffaloes are!

Have a nice day
Warm Greetings from Tzaneen

Dear Siegfried
Thank you for showing this gull wrestling with a crab! Interesting action!

It would be an even better photo, if you had not chopped off the last bit of tail... :-))

I do appreciate the natural colours very much!!

Have a nice day
Kind Regards
Ingrid

Dear Haraprasan,
I am delighted you show us a rare photo of this Butterfly with good notes - and do not worry about ''perfect technical aspects''...

I am always amazed, how you "Butterfly" masters identify the animals! Having lived for over 20 years in one of the driest areas of South Africa, virtually without flowers/butterflies - I have to admit - that they all looked to me alike until I became a member of TN!

So thank you very much for showing this interesting animal and working on the notes!

Have a nice evening and good Sunday
Warm Greetings
Ingrid

Dear Denis,

Welcome to TrekNature. I hope you will enjoy this site as much as I do.

Thank you for showing the big Elk - a pity though that you did not include the ends of the antlers, which should be impressive with such a big animal.

Still, photographing wildlife does not always allow us to zoom out/in at will...

You photographed the elk in a beautiful part of Canada, we went across on to way to Calgary.

It would be nice if you added a few notes - actually some member do not write a critique to a photo without notes - on principal.

Enjoy your evening and have a nice Sunday!
Warm Greetings from South Africa

Dear Doreen
Majestic Kudu Male in very good condition for the end of winter and hardly any food left.

The heat even here at the Tzaneen Dam is quite high for this time at the year 43 C max, though we had the previous week-end the first spring rains, which were very welcome.

I like your photo very much in every aspect - particularly I appreciate the fact, that you left the bush as it is - ""colourless"" some photo-shop jongleurs will say - the natural late winter look of the veld!

Have a nice evening and Sunday - wherever you might be and hopefully some rain.

Warm Regards
Ingrid

Dear Willem,
I was trawling TrekNature for South African Birds in flight and found your excellent image of the Hartlaub's Gull.

It is a true action shot, and I see with great pleasure the Natural colours!

Pity, you have not posted any photos to TrekNature since 2007 - I hope this was not due to ill health.

I am looking forward to see some more of your work

Warm Regards
from Tzaneen

Bonjour chere amie, Cathy
Thank you for showing this Jumping Spider in such details.

I do not like it very much, when they hop about in my bed - if one sleeps on top of them (by error) - they bites ""rows"" into the skin, and next morning one know who had shared the bed...


When I saw the thumbnail in the gallery, I thought it was a black/white image - but realised my error when viewing the photo.

Macro Photography has come a long way, and it adds to my admiration of Insect-Books illustrators, who do these detailed drawings/paintings.

Well done, my dear friend,
Bonne fin de la semaine
Love and a big hug
Ingrid

Dear Erwin
Thank you for showing a herd of Impalas.

It is a pity, that many animals are out of focus - however a big big plus in your image are the natural, CORRECT colours - because, contrary to complicated touch up, perfected by other members, this is the image of Impalas how they look!

The exposure difference between the animals in the shade and those in the bright sun-shine probably would be adjusted by TN Photoshop jongleurs, but in this case does not influence the pleasant overall effect of the image.

I wish you a nice week-end
Warm Greetings from Tzaneen

My dearest friend Bayram
Thank you for posting this detailed photo of Testudo graeca showing in the foreground their habitat in natural colours.

I do not think this species is found in South Africa. Here, all tortoises are strictly protected, not that it helps them - many still end up in cooking pots.

Many perish in the annual veld-fires in winter...

I wish you a nice week-end
