I love the colors, the depth of field, and of course, the subject matter. Terrific composition, fine details, and overall effect is a gentle mood. Beautiful, Ron.
I really love the composition and the mood this capture presents. The lighting has a somber, reflective feel to it - there's darkness and light where one fades into the other...
Excellent composition, and the lighting is so soft that it adds fragility to this posting. It's simply spectacular and one of my favorites. How easily we forget how fragile nature is, how beautiful, and how much other life on this planet affects our own...
Butterflies are so amazing, especially when one looks at the transformation they go to become what they are. We, as humans, have so much in common: we tend to flutter from place to place, love colors, are always changing, and are attracted to the people and things in our lives that are sweet, beautiful, and peaceful. There are so many ways to identify with these insects - thanks for a beautiful posting.
Your work, like you is amazing. When you stop to think about it, photography and your abilities as a doctor fit well together; you see so much of life, death, new fading to old, young growing older, and so much change in both environments - what an amazing aspect to have so much in common and to be talented at both.
Believe it or not, my own doctor is a photographer and I think I understand why, now. You're talented in so many ways - this is a beautiful capture with a title that can have a variety of meanings. The details, colors, and depth of field are fantastic - as are your notes.
Nice detail and I love the horizontal view, here. Notice how well this critter blends into his environment - think of how many pesky insects fly down beside him, probably unaware of his presence - now my question is, where was he the day the yellow jacket nailed me in the neck? Doing great things with that little camera, Bob.
Lovely moment with vivid colors, a terrific show of emotion and caring on the parent's part. Love the title as well.
Wonder if this gull and I were at the same club last night? *grin* Love the humor, the fine details, especially that tongue hanging out. It only goes to prove I am not the only one with a big mouth!
Nice depth of field and the lighting and exposure were nailed; the white doesn't look 'hot'.
Nice capture and composition.
What adorable poses! I love this, the meeting of the eyes, the curiosity, and the overall beauty of seeing these bears in their natural environment. I admit to being a bit jealous!
Stunning backdrop here, and the worm really adds to this capture! Stunning clarity, great catchlight, and the dof is fantastic. A shot to be proud of!
