Today a special photo – my 200th post :-). I want to dedicate this image to all TN members. After over 4 years on TN I finally posted my 200 photo. You can find some statistics about my activity below.

Hi Krzysztof and many congratulations on this happy event!
I wish you many more posts on TN and, in return, i thank you for all your contribution here!
These are two very beautiful collages that contain some lovely photos of all these different species. The variety of colors and sizes presented is terrific and if i were to pick my favorite shot, i think it would be the last one (right corner down) from the collage from the Workshop.
Anyway, congrats again and have a superb weekend!

Hi Krzysztof,

Many Many congratulations on your 200th post! I must quote that you came a long way in a very short time [where, time = no. of posts] :)

As always, this collage is no exception. A marvellous work abstracted in a single picture, is very pleasing to look at.
As you, I also admire the beauty of the butterflies and feel that they are one of the tender and lovely creatures of the 'Nature'.

Again, my heartiest wishes and good luck for your photography, personal- and professional- life in the days to come.

Have a nice weekend!

with best regards,
Paras Bhalla

O, moje gratulacje Krzysiek!

Dwusetny post to juz jest cos, szczegolnie, ze Twoje posty zawsze zaliczaja sie do kategorii bardzo ciekawych. Dzieki Twojej pracy poznalem naprawde wiele ciekawych zwierzakow. Motylki bardzo dobrze sie sprawdzaja przy takich okazjach - wszystkie sa bardzo ladnie zlapane. Ciekawa notka, linki i ws - masa pracy, ale widze, ze ludzie ja docenili. Czekam na kolejne ciekawe gatunki i miejsca!

Cześć Krzysiu
Super kolaż z samych ciekawych i pięknych zdjęć.
Gratuluję 200-nego zdjęcia i życzę dalszych sukcesów fotograficznych.
No i dziękuję za dedykację - przy okazji widzę, że Twoje 100-ne zdjęcie przegapiłam :)

Every shot is clear, with impressive 3D-effect, clean charming colours and terrific details of the wonderful subjects. Great works of Great Master. Bravo.

Hi Krzysztof,

I love your collage, every shot is so special and beautiful. Most I like the Marbled White (Melanargia galathea) on the violet flower.
Thanks my friend,
