AnimalExplorer (1997) [2014-10-13 9:54] Super cool capture! I love rhinos, they look just like dinosaurs. I managed to get some shots in Tanzania but never close, I was very unfortunate in my quest, maybe next time? Thanks for sharing. :)
AnimalExplorer (1997) [2014-10-13 9:49] Wow! I think I would call that the planters peanut humming bird orchid. What an amazing flower. Almost looks like two hummers perched. Would be nice to see more images of this one. I am in agreement with the others as it would be nicer to have the part that looks like the head more in focus if not all of it. Thanks for sharing this fantastic anomaly. If you manage to take more of this species please ping me an email as I would love to see more images. :)
AnimalExplorer (1997) [2014-10-13 9:39] Nice close-up image. No doubt a very beautiful bird. I still have not been able to photograph this species. They are not native to Washington state at least that is what they are saying. I took a trip up the Washington coast a couple months back and actually saw one. I reported it to the Audubon society but they did not reply back, apparently they were not interested or they did not believe me. I never got a photo of it as I was not prepared plus the evening lighting was terrible due to heavy overcast. Still interest in going back to same location to possibly snap up some images of them.
AnimalExplorer (1997) [2014-10-13 9:27] This is a first time I've seen this species and many times I have been south to photograph natures beauties but never before has this one presented itself like it has for you in this wonderful display of colors and gorgeous pattern. Well done. :)
AnimalExplorer (1997) [2014-10-13 9:24] What a beautiful capture of this sulfur yellow/white butterfly. we have something similar that flutters around over here. We take so many things for granted and most never realize the beauty in small things, but if one were to stop every now and then and get closer to natures smaller inhabitants there would be a bigger world to appreciate. Wonderful details in this macro of yours.
AnimalExplorer (1997) [2014-10-10 14:26] Pretty cool close up of this really unique looking insect. Aperture is a very nice selection and isolates the subject with no distractions. Well done Luciano. :)
AnimalExplorer (1997) [2014-07-13 11:42] Beautiful capture Gert! The soft background and the colors are very complimentary to your subject which is nice a sharp. The balanced lighting illuminates at it's best. Nice to see you post every now and then. :)
AnimalExplorer (1997) [2014-07-11 11:19] Beautiful capture! With so many images of butterflies ones curiosity get the best of themselves and brings to question how are you having so much luck approaching so many without them flying away? I know that early morning would be one way as some are still trying to warm up from the cold night. Is there any more advice you can offer? Thanks, Paul.
