Hola Jose,
beautifully clear and precise capture of a fresh young specimen of the European Swallowtail. I like the soft and tender light that is directing all the attention to the strongly contrasting colours of wings. Thank you!

Dear Laszlo,
cheerfully colourful, eye-catching presentation of the Scarlet Elfcup, a fungus that looks quite unique in our forests. In some years with humid and mild winters, they seem to be quite common in our region (austriaca), but after late February's sharp frost I am wondering how they are doing this year. Probably they do prefer the mild Irish climate.
A perfect and quite unusual greeting of Spring you have given us. Thank you! With best regards,
Peter

Lieber Dieter,
entzückende Darstellung dieses winzigen flaumigen Federbällchens, das an einem dunklen Regentag ein wenig zur Ruhe kommt. Sehr fein und präzise bringst Du aus einem perfekt gewählten Blickpunkt seine zarte Gestalt, die schimmernde Farbigkeit und die lockere Struktur seines Federkleids zur Geltung. Wunderbar!
Mit Dank und herzlichem Gruss,
Peter

Ciao Luciano,
spectacular presentation of Chapman's Blue on a colourful blossom of late summer that is providing a glamorous stage for its visitor. Nice to get an impression of the surrounding Georgian landscape in the background, too.
Thank you!

Ciao Luciano,
this is a charming portrait of Vanessa io returning to life after Long months of hibernation! I like the way you are sdemonstrating the perfect dry leaf camouflage of its resting pose in cheerful contrast to a promising glimpse of occhio di pavone on the conspicous upper side of wings. Thank you!

Dear Ram,
a pleasure to see this lively scene of courship from your vegetable garden! Your school yard has become legendary here with your beautiful observations and skilful contributions. The Large Cabbage White, once a common species also in our region, has become quite scarce there after decades of ruthless persecution because of being considered a pest to vegetable gardens. In India, cabbage whites are obviously seen with tolerance and treated with respect, and so you can enjoy pleasant encounters like this one - thank you!
With best regards,
Peter

Dear Seyfi,
a pleasure to see this well portrayed couple of the colourful yellow skipper from last summer at this time of the year! Very nice also to read about the origin of their scientific name. Scientists of the late 18th century were masters of enriching the perception of nature with phantasy by citing antique myths and fairy-tales. Thank you!

Liebe Anne,
eine Freude, die vollendete farbliche Übereinstimmung des bunten Postillions mit der von ihm besuchten Blüte zu sehen! Ihr heiteres Gelb und Orange wird behutsam von dem neutralen Hintergrund und einem kleinen Stück blauen Himmels kontrastiert. Immer wieder schön, in Deinem reichhaltigen Archiv Entdeckungen zu machen. Freue mich aber natürlich auch auf weitere Naturfotografie von Dir, die wie die unvergleichlichen Beobachtungen von Menschen Deiner Street Photography mit ihrer subtilen erzählerischer Kraft und vollendetem Sinn für Licht, Farbharmonien und Komposition bestechen.
Mit herzlichen Gruss aus Wien,
Peter

Dear Ram,
this is a truly exciting image of spectacular Kallima inachus. Precisely showing its boldly shaped wings, their magnificent pale blue iridescence in striking contrast to the orange band, you managed to capture the rare encounter of this shy, powerful, quick and determined flyer landed for mud-puddling in the short moment of wings spread amazingly well. Congratulations! Your demonstration of that spectacular butterfly's resting pose with its unbelievably perfect dry leaf camouflage in the workshop is very impressing, too. Thank you!

Peter

Dear Laszlo,

I am deeply touched by your picture that gives me the warm familiar feeling of coming home from a long trip in the Alps with all kinds of weather. It surprises me with the fact that it was taken in Ireland, showing one of the highest mountains there, rising to more than 1000 meters. It is obvious that this beautiful island has become your beloved home as it is obvious from all your contributions that you are an outstanding biologist and photographer with a deep love of nature.

Deeply touched and honoured also by your very kind words of dedication.
Please apologize my late response, having been absent from my computers for a while.

All the best to you my dear friend, with kindest regards,

Peter

amazingly monumental composition in your portrait of that tiny blue. I like the strict reduction with strongly coloured blossoms in the foreground and a well supportingly neutral distant background.

a very pretty presentation of Melanargia russia, very well detailed and clear in front of a well supporting smooth background in pleasantly restrained colours. Very nicely imbedded in small white blossoms repeating the colours of its wings. Thank you!
