Hello Marius,
Your Squacco Heron reminds me somewhat of the Green Herons I see up at the Magee Marsh during the spring migration. I like the way you captured it in a sneaking pose with eyes intensely fixed on something just out of camera range. The focus on the bird appears sharp yet for some strange reason the plumage detail on its wing and back looks a bit soft.

Hello Musa,
From this extremely low POV you have given us a great view of what might seem like a jungle to a small rodent, lizard or even an insect.

Hello Hasan,
The flower has a unique shape and its bright yellow petals are beautiful. I like the off center placement of the bloom. Focus is sharp and exposure is very good.

Hello Peter,
Appears wasps were on the menu for this gorgeous specimen. The Bee-eaters have become a favorite of mine since I joined TN, before then I never even knew they existed. You have done a wonderful job of photographing this lovely bird with dinner in its bill. A pleasure to view such a splendid image!!

Hello Laszlo,
What a lovely scene from the Cooper Coast region. Looks like a great place to spend an entire day walking the beaches and exploring the surrounding rocky ledges. I love the deep blue color of the water in contrast to the greens and browns of the terrain. I could also spend some time sitting on one of those boulders with a fishing pole in my hand;)

Using the lovely conifer as a natural frame was a great way to show off this beautiful Aoste Vallery region. Wonderful lighting as it filters through the trees and illuminates the mountain range in the BG.

Hello Musa,
Nice shot of this late season flowering plant. It seems that the majority of the plants in your area always show sings of spider activity in the form of tiny webs. Perhaps you will someday be fortunate enough to capture one still at home.

A nice shot of this flowering Yucca plant. I like the way it is placed a bit off center and framed in by the large palm on the left. Maybe not tac sharp, but still quite presentable.

Nice shot of this poisonous mushroom. I was just talking to a friend yesterday about this species of mushroom and he surprisingly said there are some types of Amanita that are edible.

Nice inflight capture of this Hooded Crow as it intimidates the much larger eagle. I see small birds and crows hassling hawks in this same manner quite regularly. Very sharp focus revealing excellent detail while showing beautiful natural colors.

Sorry to hear you were not able to recover your precious photos, we can still enjoy the ones you have restored like this beauty. I like the contrasting colors of deep crimson red against a mostly gray BG. Nicely composed in a square frame while displaying excellent detail.

The lighting was quite harsh, but you still managed to capture the true beauty of these colorful flowers. I like how they appear in different shades of yellow, red, and orange. This particular plant seems to produce very lush and dense foliage.

A very pretty flowering plant that is in its seed stage. The reddish colored seed heads with white silk like hairs contrasts nicely with the grey boulders in the BG. I like the backlighting effect you managed to capture.

Hello Luciano,
I see you captured this cute little male in an attractive frontal pose. Seems to be busy feeding on nuts and doesn't mind having his picture taken. I actually did enjoy your series, there is not a day goes by that I don't see a number of these agile acrobats of the forest.
Sharply focused allowing us to view its colorful coat in fine detail. Wonderful eye contact with a bit of catchlight visible. The beautiful leaves make a very pretty BG.
