Hello Seyfi, a very clear and monumentally well detailed documentation of a rare species of ringlets, coming with excellent notes. By the way: does the butterfly that you are showing have a damaged left forewing - or what may it be that is standing out a little bit between forewing sind antennae? Excellent contribution. Thank you! With best regards, Peter

Ciao Silvio, superb capture of an exquisite species of fritillaries! They often require a lot of patience from us before they give us the chance to capture their undersides of wings that are so essential for their identification. Grazie, saluti - Peter

definitely a very nicely composed image, presenting that conspicuous butterfly on blossoms in an elegant pose from a well chosen low point of view under pleasantly soft light in front of a perfectly supporting smooth Background.

Hello Ram,
a monumental, very clear, remarkably well lighted, well composed presentation, instantly drawing the attention to your perfect portrait of a small day active moth. Moths quite often do us the favour to rest on the well contrasting plain background of painted walls. You made a good decision to take that chance. Thank you!

Hello Musa,
another interesting demonstration of a tiny plant's size and shape, well done with your little pocket camera that is working really well at close distance. Good idea to take the ruler into the picture. It seems that from this very close distance the camera is casting some shadow on the subject that seems to be emerging out of a mysterious darkness, adding an attractive special quality to the image. Thank you!
With best regards,
Peter

Hello Laurens,
excellent super-macro, amazing details, very well seen and approached. Pleasantly loft light is perfect for showing subtle Details and colours.

Hello Luciano,
back in your gallery after 4 years but looking very fresh and up to date. Clear, precise and well exposed under pleasantly soft sunlight, your image is sending cheerful greetings to spring that is arriving quire reluctantly this year. Have also seen a some Aglais urticae coming out from their hibernation hides a few days ago, but non of them was in such a good condition as yours.
Thank you! With best regards,
Peter

Dear Ram,
a clear and precise, impressively matter-of-fact presentation of the results of successful courtship among Cabbage Whites as shown in your previous postings - a charming trilogy on life, indeed.
Highly instructive notes that tell us a lot of details. So your picture is showing us at least two different stages of caterpillar instars.
Wondering why the farm keeper on your school campus "deliberately left the leaves of cappage plants" after the end of crop season. Did he wisely do so in order to give cabbage whites a good chance to develop a next gereration to be shown to scholars and other people of interest?
Thank you! With best regards,
Peter

Dear Laszlo,
wonderful posting, litterally heart-warming! I like the invitingly sunny warm colours, the attractively contrasting combination of red and green in the leaves, their precisely presented details, the very strict and clear composition - and, above all, your abilitity to combine scientifically knowledged photography of nature with artistical originality and an emotionally touching telling of personal stories.
Congratulations to you for this pretty picture in celebration of your re-location to Ireland, that loveably country that has become another beloved homeland to you.
With all my best wishes to you,
Peter

Guten Morgen Dieter,
hat Laurens Dich also erfolgreich animiert, unser Augenmerk auch Deinerseits auf die im allgemeinen wenig geachtete Ordnung der Spinnen zu richten. Diese Radnetzspinne zählt gewiss nicht zu den Kleinsten. Klar, scharf und hell ausgeleuchtet hast Du sie links im Bild eindrucksvoll wiedergegeben. Ich wäre gewiss versucht gewesen, nur die scharfe linke Hälfte des Bildes mit nur der einen Spinne als Ausschnitt zu präsentieren. Doch Dir geht es wohl darum, das paarweise Auftreten dieser Spinne in noch dazu fast identer Ausrichtung der Körper zu dokumentieren und zu zeigen. Schöne Widmung an Laurens!
Mit Dank und herzlichem Gruss,
Peter

Guten Morgen Dieter,
hinreissend lebendige Prsentation eines Ameisenbrs im dichten Dschungel bei bestem Appetit! Es war Dir vergnnt, beneidenswert viel fr uns Ungewhnliches auf Deiner Reise in die amerikanischen Tropen zu sehen und festzuhalten. Deine mit sehr lesenswerten Texten versehenen Reiseeindrcke hier mitzuverfolgen und nachzuerleben ist ein Vergngen.
Wnschte mir derzeit auch einen Ameisenbren als Haustier. Der spte Wintereinbruch hat seit Tagen Scharen von im milden Januar in Vorgarten und Terrassentrgen bereits aktiv gewordenen kleinen Ameisen in unsere Wohnung getrieben.
Mit Dank und herzlichem Gruss,
Peter

Hello Laurens,
also here: an exciting discovery of an often neglected tiny creature that is around us but not seen closely enough by most of us. Technically and artistically perfect, your pleasantly silent posting is a very attractive invitation to check the close-up abilities of our own equipment to follow your path into the world of unseen beauties just around us. Admiring also your knowledge of the biology and taxonomy of creatures that is not easily accessible. Thank you!
With best regards,

Hello Laurens,
another very impressing, technically perfect close-up of a tiny beetle, allowing to study the shapes and structures of its surface in fine details, and also showing its subtle colours with iridescent stripes in a most favourable way by the skilful use diffused flash. An exciting report of discovering creatures that are around us but not seen by most of us. Thank you!
