Hi Ron,

This is almost too good to be true! The details of the wings and the highlight of the eye are magnificent. Not to mention a beautiful in-flight pose and spectacular details. Snow?? What is snow. We are having a winter filled with temps in the 80's. I dread thinking of what August will bring.

Hi Asbed,

I missed seeing this the other night and was so happy to find your excellent capture of the Blood Moon. You did a wonderful job with the settings and captured the event just beautifully.

Ron, this picture is just perfect! You have captured this Warbler so nicely that I feel I am seeing it for myself in my own backyard. Wish I was there to go with you on your birding excursions.

Hi Silvio

I like the shot very much - unusual pose - ants and gall a definite plus. Good work.

Hi Srikumar

A nice composition - a little oversharpened, but that is sometimes difficult to see before you upload. Great colours.

Hi Neels

A lovely shot - strange for me to see snow in SA (though the first time I arrived the area round Johannesburg was white with frost).

Nice use of the frame and contrasting forms and colours.

This is lovely, Anne. The splash of purple amongst the green foliage really stands out, and the fern adds some interesting texture and shape to the timage. Your DOF has also created a lovely soft neutral background tooo - well done on a thoughtful image.
Hope you are well,

i saw quite a few Ground Squirrels on my recent trip to the Staes - they're agressive little fellas aren't they? Very vocal! I like his stood up pose here, it could be a touch sharper but that's a minor thing - lovely shot, well done!

It must have been amazing to see so many of these in one place! Good clarity and details - i think that this could benefit from just a little more saturation to bring out that red!
