Hello Roberto !
This is a lovely picture, I like the sunny and friendly colors, but I also like the composition a lot, with the grass making a nice diagonal. Great pose of the butterfly, allowing us to fully admire the beauty of your subject. Splendid blurred BG. Very well done !

Hello Tom !
This is an unusual picture, usually when we see impalas it is a picture with warm colors, dry grass and sun - this is special. Not something we see every day on TN. I also like how the first impala is in focus, and then the others get more and more blurred, it gives a nice depth to your picture. Excellent sharpness and details, wonderful composition, nice natural colors. Very well done !

These fungi looks wonderful, I like their shape and their color, all those dofferent nuances of brown are gorgeous. You have managed to capture every detail on your picture, it's impressive. I also like the composition and the dark blurred BG a lot, it makes the fungi stand out in the most beautiful way. Very well done !

Hello Ulla !
Poor bird, stuck like this in the snow - I hope he managed to get out in the end... It is a great moment you have captured here, excellent timing. I also like how the snow is making "hills" behind the rook, looks very nice. Very well done !

Hello Willy !
This is sucha wonderful picture ! You have managed to capture some escellent details on the baby turtle, and I also LOVE those sunny, friendly colors. It's nice also to have the turtle looking at you. The different layers - sand, sea and then sky - looks very nice, but maybe I would have tried not a vertical composition but a landscape composition, to include more of this wonderful BG and to leave some space in front of the turtle... This is just my opinion, though. The picture is great as it is. Very well done !

Hello Ram !
It may ba a fungi, but it looks like a flower ! :-) I like how the hat is split to shape 4 identical parts, like the petals of a flower - it is so beautiful and unusual... I also like the colors, vivid yellow and different nuances of green. Excellent details, perfect POV, and I like that you have kept the second fungi on the picture, it givesd us an idea about what a "normal" fungi looks like. Very well done !

Hello Ulla !
This one looks a lot like our big fat domestic Goose, but I have never seen any one of them in the wild, you are sooo lucky ! You managed to capture excellent details on the bird's face and plumage. I also like the composition, showing nothing but grass around the Goose. Nice natural colors, beautiful light. Very well done !

Hello Denis !
This is a wonderful picture ! I have always admired this bird, I love its color, but it doesn't live in France so I have to watch it only on pictures... Here I love the pose of the bird ; we see the back (and the wonderful patterns of the wings and tail) but also the face. Excellent details, beautifully composed, with nice natural colors. Very well done !

Hello Alexei !
I'm still struggling to get ONE insect in flight, and you have two of them on one single picture ! This is amazing ! I specially like the butterfly, he looks like some sort of big plane compared to the hoverfly... I also like the vivid and friendly colors of your picture, and the shot is also wonderfully composed, with great sharpness and details. Very well done !

Bonjour Michel !
En parcourant ta galerie, je suis tombée sous le charme de cette très belle image. Comme tu le dis dans ta note, c'est l'atmosphère qui fait toute la beauté de la photo. La brume, la lumière du matin, la forme tordue des arbres, tout cela confère à l'image un peu de mystère, de magie... C'est vraiment très agréable à regarder. Félicitations !

This is a beautiful, fat caterpillar ! And it has really a big head. You have managed to capture him with excellent details, and I also like the composition, the POV, the nice natural colors. The "nest" of silk looks fine, too. Very well done !
