Much better we see a lot more detail, how it got the day old chick is slightly worrying, but probably explains why it swooped towards you, it was hopping for more food.
a small point this should realy of been posted as a repost image (RP) done by going to photos manage and clicking on the link next to your image wich says repost and add the improved image which then links the 2 images so they can be compared. Techincally this classes as a double posting which normally be removed but will leave this time due toyour newness here.

Superb Image Ertugrul, the action you caught of the moorhen stretching,is beautifully seen and cropped. considering that the weather was Rainy and cloudy the image looks very sunny. Is the Lens a Nikon one or another?

Hi Galyna, I presume these are in an Aquarium and not free to destroy your beautiful native ones. I think looking at their position I think they are possibly mating as all crayfish and lobster females carry their eges under the tail so the male would need to be in this position to fertilse them.
The centre of the image could do with the highlights from the flash being darkened a fraction and the outer part being lightened so the claws become more visible so I have atempted a WS to try and show this.

Sorry to Hear this news Heinz, You have been a GOOD member of TN, it is only with the help of such people as you that the site maintains it's quality. We have always had our ups and downs and we come through the rough patchs because the people who break rules or are rude get removed and those who are not realy into wildlife go else were to post my cat , dog etc.
Must admit to not having posted or even added critques lately because all my available time for the site has been spent sorting out the problem posters and images. but that does not mean I have not been keeping an eye your brilliant work. If you feel the need for a rest from critquing or even constant posting , please keep in touch with the site and even upload the odd image to remind others who you are.
Oh Yes the Fox , just wish I could get near enough to get such a wonderful shot TFS and see you soon yours Robert

Hi Antony definatley a Popular but not Alba the twig colour is wrong and so isthe bud shape.
My best educated guess for where you are is the Black Popular (Populus nigra) though there are a couple of sub-species that unless you can see the whole try you cannot name because the differance in shape though I would probably rule out the upright growing Lombardy popular because of your thoughts that it might be P. alba which is also a spreading tree.
As to No winter early spring , so far in the UK we have seen no real winter and in sheltered spots spring flowers are starting to flower I already have primroses into flower since November.

Hi Felipe, 1st thing I noticed was that this was taken with your faithful Sony ? good view of these 2 mushrooms especially the one cut off so we can see the cross section of the stem, not something I tend to do because I tend to leave in situe as I am not harvesting for food.
I has your usual standard of clarity of focus and colour. TFS yours Robert

Nice capture of this Magpie Inkcap not a species I have yet seen let alone photographed so well.
A few notes about where you found it and how you photographed it would improve the post by helping other to learn how you achieved the shot

Well Captured and the type of thought I would encourage on TN, not all nature is good looking and deathe is an integeral part of nature, and while yes the thought for people to drive more carefully because wildlife is every where even in town we see large numbers of Foxs and hedgehogs killed this way. Though on the up-side the scavangers such as Kites , Crows and Jackals etc will make use of it, as will the various insects and their larvae.
I too have some simular images and keep promissing my self to post them, must get round to it.

In-flight shots of heron are very difficult in the European form as they seem to have become shy due to persecution so whenever your try to get close they move away. So this clear shot is well done, you could selectively darken the head to reduce the brightness of the over exposure, you could also lighten the dark areas under the wing area also.
I have my self only managed 1 perched shot and one series of in-flight ones taken in multi-shot of which only the 1st of it on the bank and the last fully in flight were sharp as it shot up as soon as it heard the shutter click ;0((( so it can be a slow job getting good images unless you are prepared to sit in a hide and wait for one to turn up.

Hi Benyamin intresting image of these silvery fish, looking at the large scales of both fish they look sharp so the blurr of the head is probably due to movement. I think you did remarkably well through thick glass.
Did you clean it 1st and were you in contact with the glass? and was the flash held away from the camera?

I can understand why it won an award, the form and the lighting are superb and the way it goes from light to dark centres the viewer back to the subject. well done.

Hi Hilary, a prettygood capture of a Coot details in both feathers and face shield very difficult to atchieve, love the reflections and riples really add to it.
The eye could be reddened up a bit with select colour in hue and saturation and just up the reds a fraction. you could try sharpening with High Pass filter as an alternative. will try my self and see what happens

Hi clint an outstanding portart shot that even in thumbnail stands out head and shoulder above other images here on TN, The fact that you managed to take it through armoured glass they use in zoos and avoided all the greasy hand prints left by the children trying to get a closer view. makes this a brilliant capture, the detail in the skin and hair are perfect.
small tips for others look at the edges of the glass for clean spots or take a packet of glass wipes to clean a small patch, then get the camera lens in contact with the glass to reduce the reflections from it.

Welcome to Tn, nice capture of this pale form of hedgehog. Not unusual for them to be out in very dry weather as food becomes harder to find, especially in the autumn when they are trying to fatten up for winter.
Good sharp image, TFS yours Robert
