Hi Ram,
one of your really good bird shots, this White-throated Kingfisher. I have seen this bird in Turkey, thanks to your contribution and the instructive note (thanks !) I know now that its distribution is really wide.

Hi Laurens,
a wonderful composition, the right contrast despite the black-and-white object and a bee never seen before, my compliments. How do you identify the many mediterranean species you have presented on TN?

Hi Luciano,

such a beautiful hopper and a shot well taken in a remote region, but I couldn't find a name to it. The closest I came up with is Poecilimon scythicus (Shchelkanovtsev, 1911) but I have doubts. Neighbouring Turkey alone has 60 species of the genus Poecilimon! Sorry I couldn't help. Cheers, Dietrich

Hi Ron,
you didn't get the attention you deserved for this awesome shot, Ron. How the bird stands out from the drab background ! And the technical stuff mastered so well. Chapeau!
Thanks for your remarks on my beetle. Yes, there is at least one similar species in the Eastern Mediterranean, Sepidium tricuspidatum

Hi Luciano,
10 points on the Richter scale for daring shots! I know how you feel, I also tried with this Mourning Cloak, in vain. But I had never the courage of presenting the picture on TN.
Thanks for this! Dietrich

Hi Luciano,
I appreciate this picture because Brintesia are nervous animals, it's difficult to focus on them, more difficult to compose a picture. You did it, praise on you. I like your careful comments.
You also presented many pictures from Georgia which I have visited twice as a bicyclist. To get the good pictures of Lycaenidae and Co. you must have carried heavy equipment along.
Thanks for your comments on my pictures, my best regards, Dietrich

Hi Gisela,
looks like a Hamadryas (the butterfly, not the ape) to me, a Cracker as Ron said. In the Southern US you find Hamadryas feronia, in Central America several species of this genus. And yes, we are allowed to marvel about the intricate wing pattern. So did a few hard-working physiologists that unraveled the ways of rapid signalling between undifferentiated cells that lay down the pattern (see e.g. J.Otaki, 2008. Review: Physiologically induced color-pattern changes in butterflies. Journal of Insect Physiology 54, pp. 1099-1112). Best regards, Dietrich

Hi Geoffrey,
you were lucky with this shot, you caught the animal with the characteristic orange teeth! While swimming, the shoulder part of the body remains under water. And you were right with your pun, it's an American in Paris, the Nutria or Coypu (Myocastor coypus) has its origin in Southern South America. And you are right too, it was bred in Europe for its fur. Escaped animals established colonies in the wild but severe winters take their toll (I owe you, Wikipedia).
Thanks for the interesting contribution. Best regards, Dietrich

Hello Luciano,
I am pleased that you don't ignore the Geometridae in your incredible collection of excellent butterfly shots. They are often small and reveal their elegance only after taking a macro shot. Thanks for sharing and the very useful comment, and thanks for your comment on my Crane fly.
Ciao, Dietrich

Hi Ron,
how you do it is your secret: getting that close to those small warblers. Yes, I understood that you are a patient birdwatcher and a good photographer. The result is wonderful. Thanks for the useful note and for commenting on my Dipteran.

Hi Ram,

good to see you in full force :-) The shot of the Jewel bug in the shadow is just incredible. It's even a demonstration of what the colours might be for: to shine even under dark conditions. Compliments. Thanks for commenting my Dipteran!

Bonjour Pierre,
l'image de l'animal est très réussi, t'as pris la peine de t'agenouiller et de faire un "tête à tête". Tu avais utilisé un flash (reflex dans l'oeil). Chapeau!
A mon opinion il ne s'agit pas d'un crapaud, mais de Discoglossus galganoi, un discoglosside connu seulement de l' Espagne. Signes: la paupière a la forme d'une goutte; on ne voit pas de tympan; il existe une bande à glandes depuis l'oeil jusqu'à lépaule. Ce qui dérange: il y a un raccourci téléscopique du corps, le museau semble trapu; la femelle doit être plein d'oeufs; il manque un triangle entre les yeux et la pointe du museau. Mais la variation dans la coloration semble énorme vu les images sur internet.
Amicalement, Dieter

Leibe Anne,
Du bist noch aktiv, und suchst den Frühling. Zum Bild teile ich ganz die Ansicht von kinglove:
很漂亮的花朵
這種色彩的對比很清滲人心
很有藝術的味道
照的很美 也很有故事
Hoffentlich kriegst Du das Rückenproblem in den Griff!
