Hi Musa,
Although the subject in itself wouldn't be that spectacular, the lights make it unique. Great contrast between the golden grass and the rather shady background. It works for me.

Hi Lou,
Not only aesthetically beautiful, but also a unique image. It's rare to see Asterophora lycoperdoides with such well developed fruitbody. Spectacular macro with perfect sharpness and most of all, composition. Bravo!

Hi Ben,
Excellent photo with great pose from the heron. Beautiful details / sharpness on the plumage and well blurred background to gain attention on the heron only. Nice colors, especially the orange / red legs make good contrast with the other part of the image. Elegant work, congratulations! Just a little amendment to your note: the genus name is Butorides, not Bactorides.

Merhaba Seyfi bey,
Fantastic macro, the details on the wings are tack sharp and the off-centered composition is pleasant to look at. Perfect exposure even in harsh lights, and nice white balance settings as well. Background's a little noisy, but the image itself is lovely overall. Congratulations!

Hi Sri,
The eagle is very nice, and the background is less disturbing, because it has a little grey-ish tint, not fully white, therefore not blinding the viewer. Great details on the plumage. And about the last few sentences of your note: in case of passport photos the white background works well, but this site is TrekNature, not TrekPassport. ;-)

Hi Silvio,
Very nice shot, the butterfly and the flower are both tack sharp. It's a pity there was a grass-blade between your lens and the b-fly, without that the photo would be even more effective. Anyway, except for this, a nice shot.

Hi Nikos,
I hope you'll be able to return to the site soon. Although the blank space IMHO is a little too much at the top, nice macro overall with good lights and colors.

Hi Luciano,
I have no problem with the background, it fits to the image well and helps to concentrate on the moth only. I think if you have a boxwood (Buxus) in your garden the plant's very happy that you don't meet this species too often. ☺ Proper flash usage again and a nice classical composition wwith excellent sharpness. Top class shot in my opinion.
Kind regards, László

Hi Luciano,
Beautiful moth, and as always, you used flashlight in an extraordinary way to get the most proper light conditions. Mesmerizing pink with great textures on the wing as well. The only thing I might have done differently is a vertical composition. Otherwise very nice image.

Hi Hasan,
Beautiful species. Be careful with the lights when photographing fungi with such bright colours as some small parts often can be overexposed, like it happened on this otherwise nice picture.

Hi Luciano,
Not a bad photo, but - in my opinion - not on the high standard we often get from you. I understand this was the first time you saw this species, it's always a unique occasion, so I'm talking about the aesthetic side of the image only. The out of focus leave is distracting as it's too large in the frame and is hiding the entire body of the butterfly. A pity, because sharpness is fine on the wings and the exposure seems good as well.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Ben,
Gorgeous photo, the unique flowers are tack sharp, the exposure is spot on and the red of the flower, especially where got a bit of sunshine, is wonderful. Spectacular shadow depth of field as well, and for the whole majestic composition, the chosen point of view is superb, too. Absolutely the photo of the day for me.
