That's a masterpiece, Ron! Absolutely perfect. A wonderful composition, beautiful light, needle-sharp and technically perfect. :-)

I haven't been in here in ages, and I'm very glad to see you're still knocking them out.

When trying to tell a Monarch from a Viceroy, I just look for that black line through the back wing, as it's an easily-seen field mark. The Viceroys and Monarchs often fly differently too. Viceroys often fly much faster and in a straight line instead of fluttering and dipsy-doodling around the way Monarchs tend to do.

A spectacular photo and bird, Ron! Excellent!

I haven't stopped in here in quite some time, great to see you're still here, taking great photos. :-)

Nice, subtle color and an attractive flower but the fine detail isn't there, not quite as sharp as it might be. It could be due to diffraction softening if that figure of f/51 is accurate.

An outstanding photo of this beautiful Iris species. Nice depth of field that shows all the details in sharp focus. I like seeing it in its habitat too.

A very attractive image, interesting plant and moth. Unfortunately, I have no idea what the plant is, attractive or not. ;-)

I did a little work looking for the moth but came up empty. It reminds me of a moth we have here in the Ctenucha genus, but as far as I can tell, that genus doesn't occur in India, but I can't say for certain. However, there is a Flickr group called Moths of India that might be of help if you don't mind becoming a member of the group.

What a handsome, little creature! A wonderful shot of it too, very nicely composed, exposure is on the money and the color, sharpness and OOF background all combine to make a beautiful image. I like seeing the second one in the background.

A fine portrait of these attractive mushrooms! Nice and sharp, excellent detail, exposure is just right and the dark background really gives frames the mushrooms nicely and lends a dramatic look to the photo.

I know a bit about North American mushrooms, and while these are certainly Armillarias, I suspect that they are a species other than A. mellea, just doesn't look right to me for that species, wrong color and the stalk doesn't look right either. Armillaria mellea is an abundant species where I live, and these really don't look like the A. mellea that grows here.

Mycologist Tom Volk at the University of Wisconsin in La Crosse has done extensive work on our North American Armillarias, and you can see his key at http://botit.botany.wisc.edu/toms_fungi/armkey.html#nona

Hello Gérard,

A superb image, nicely composed and very rich color. This is a favorite plant of mine, and I don't think I've ever seen such a deep color of blue-violet in them before, usually much more pale than this.
