Looks very much like the larvae of a hoverfly, they may be ugly but they are great little hunter of aphids which plauge our gardens.

Hi Tim, I can see why you converted to B&W it give quiet a graphic image with simular line of pattern across the image, with this in mind I did a workshop to try and streghten the pattern. Though I prefer the colour one for the vibrancy of the colours.
A question, is it true the berries of this ground cover cornus are edible. I ask because the plants I grow at work for the 1st time have bright red berries and I seem to rember reading some where they were.
TFS yours Robert

Hi Joe I think I can name your Bug as a Forrest Shield Bug Pentatma rufipes a fairly common bug though I had not seen one before last week a little older than this one but still sub adult I think I will post later.
Looks to have been taken on another of the very dull days we seem to have had this spring.The detail in the back shell is very good but the DOF is a fraction short I think F8 would of reduced the speed to 1/100sec which would still of been hand holderable but given you enough DOF to get the eyes in and probably the antenae though they might of been moving too much, they seem to wave them about a lot;0)).

Hi Paul a good clear if a little dark image of as every body has said 2 Aphids. what they have not realised is that both specimens we see here have been practised by a little wasp and will damage your roses no more they have been consumed from the inside and the now expanded body contains the pupae of this tiny black wasp.
I suggest you have a look at this web site which will explain all in good detail. Aphid parasitic Wasp

Classic seascape image to start with good warm evening light to add depth of colour.
A few notes about how you set up the shot and post processed it would be usfull to a great many people here.

Congrates on your 250th, a good moment to capture, I can understand why the collage but I would love to have seen some of the detail fo the skin splitting etc.
If you have a shot that inclued the tail I might be able to sex it for you as there are differances to be seen.

Hi Joe, Very interesting shot of these 2 Harris Hawks, you refer to this as the "Original" of another of the Harris images, so I went looking and if correct that this is the full image of the 2 headed portrait you posted very early on then unfortunately this image breaks one of the TN rules about posting the same image twice. To do so correctly it should of been posted as a re-post through the manage images in your photos. This would also of automatically connected the 2 images so people can see the differences.
On this occasion I intent not to do anything about it but please can you post crops or other alterations this way in the future.
If you or anybody else has any questions please feel free to email me or post it to the forum so all can see and disscuss the question.
Yours Robert Brown (TN Moderator)

Hi Nicholas,
you need to change your note and title what you have here is a mature Male Blue Chaser the give away is the 2 brown half moons on the side of the body and the glassy blue look to the eyes. Not a common dragonfly in the UK but is found on the south coast on slow moving rivers rich in water side vegitation and good water quality. If this was a broadbodied chase then the edge of the body would have yellow markings down them and be wider in the middle and blue down to the end of the body.
Hope this is of Help yours Robert

Hi Jan, How I wish I had taken this one, it is beautiful the balance of light and colour is perfect IMO.
I agrre with Kathleen though the image improves if you veiw it with the top cropped off at the bottom of the dark band near the top to get rid of the light areas also it pulls the line of fungi onto the top Third of the image which is a strong place for the subject to be rather than across the middle.

Welcome to TN Richard, 1st a correct ident for your dragonfly. It is an immature Male Black-tailed Skimmer (Orthetrum cancellatum)
For such a set-up it is well captured , Not perfectly sharp but the distance and movment of probably both the subject on the reed in even a slight breeze and the lens unit would unless held by a firm tripod have some shake in it? you do not say if it was hand held or not.
Thank you for sharing Yours Robert

Hi Hendrick,
Intresting find, not unusual for some natural color variation in Poppies, you can also get white ones. Though I suspect that they are more likely to be hybrids, comparing the stamek colours between the reds ones and the pinks which have yellow stamens. Also they seem to be larger which is another sign of hybridisation. Cannot see a reason to remove them.
Nice image I like the comparison between the 2 types even though the red ones are in the BG. I would of been tempted to darked down the centres of the flowers a fraction as they look a little too bright on my screen.
TFS yours Robert

Hi Steve,
Congrats on your 3ooth,I know its not always been easy for you to be on site, but you are still here contributing fully and helping others to improve and learn, thank you for this it helps to make the site what it is.
An intresting group of beautifully captured white fungi, so difficult to do in dark conditions , maybe a slight lightening of the bottom right corner to allow some of the details to come out.

Hello Hakan, your excelant image of an insects eye does not match the note / information you have added to the image.
It would be good to know what lens you used as this is the sort of details I would like to get from my own D200

Hello David I have an Ident for your insect. It is not a Dragonfly but a White-legged Damselfly (Platycnemis pennipes).
Hope this information helps with a note to acompany the image.
The images is not bad considering the shutter speed and F stop you had to use so late in the evening. at these sort of speeds a tripod or some thing to rest the camera on is almost a must for a sharp image.

Nice one Steve! Love these blighters - they are amongst the most clever animals on the planet, and good for him to be sorting out this instrument of torture used on horses! Ncet nice detail on the plumage, like the way the bogy is bemd in an arch, all underlined by the riding crop. A very nice effort.

Hi Radomir, I agree we seem to have ended up with very simular images of related newts.I like the low angle of veiw, certainly helps with the dinosaur look.
