Hi Luciano,
you were right to show the species again. The composition and the lighting are exceptional, they make this butterfly look like a real Queen, standing out proudly. Evolution in racing mode! Have a nice weekend, Dietrich

Hi Dariusz,
great portrait, and with 1/80 sec exposure and 400 mm focus! The composition with a wonderful background makes me guess that you used a tripod and waited for the animal. But then, your other works suggest hand-held shots. Whatever, you know your stuff, congratulations.
Greetings, Dietrich

Hi Musa,
I'm not a botanist and unfortunately I don't know your region Quetta. The riddle you pose us is not easily solved. Could the fruit be from Platanus orientalis? The species occurs naturally from the Balkan to the Himalayas and has been spread even wider by man.
Thanks for your contribution. Greetings, Dietrich

Hi Luciano,
great, this fiery Fritillary. Your note is very useful. I wonder wether the double row of points on the abdomen is also distinctif.
Thanks for your comment on the flying White, you seem to know by experience that automatic focussing is not useful for macros.
Have a good day, Dieter

Cher Roland,
j'ai vu trop tard que tu avais la même idée :-) Ton atterissage d'un Piéride est très bien photographié. Les ailes sont illuminées par le contre-jour, magnifique. Je sais maintenant que c'est difficile d'arriver à de telles images, mes félicitations.
Amitiés, Dieter

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

Hi Moz,
What a great job you did in presenting this tiny spider, complients.
You ask for help with ID. Here it is: in my opinion you caught a Nigma puella (Simon) male. It belongs to the family of Dictynidae. I used the "Collins Field Guide Spiders" by M.J. Roberts. You may be proud on your "First on TN" . I have never encountered a living specimen of the Dictynidae family. My best regards, Dietrich

Hi Mozwik,
you got a very well captured Athalia rosae (L.) here, a small Sawfly. Tenthredinids are difficult to ID, I check with https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Species_of_Tenthredinidae. Thanks for participating on TN.
Best regards, Dietrich

such a fine, delicate little butterfly, this Wood White. Where I live the species is restricted to higher altitudes and not often seen.
Thank you for presenting it here, Silvio.

great, this rain-soaked Redstart you present us. This species is not common where I live, the Black Redstart more so, which is essentially a mountain bird. Thanks. Greetings Dietrich

Hi Luciano,
the ugliness disappears with your good macro shot. The eye ! This species is not yet present in my yard, but of course you have warmer weather in the Ticino valley. You provide a good reminder of things to come.
Thanks for your presentation. Thanks also for your comments on my pics from Jordan and Egypt. My best regards, Dietrich

Hi Silvio,
this must be a first on TN. I never heard of a Riodinid butterfly whose larvae specialise on Primula before ... You not only photographed it well but presented it to TN. A special thanks for the detailed description in the note !

Hi Ori,
I like the contrast achieved with a flash, it sets the flower nicely apart from the environment. In your "Photo info" it says "Flash did not fire".
Are the granules flower buds or unripe fruits? The wilted leaves suggest the latter.
My best regardes, Dietrich
