Hello Musa,
Nice shot of this late season flowering plant. It seems that the majority of the plants in your area always show sings of spider activity in the form of tiny webs. Perhaps you will someday be fortunate enough to capture one still at home.

Hello Raimundo,
A nice shot of this flowering Yucca plant. I like the way it is placed a bit off center and framed in by the large palm on the left. Maybe not tac sharp, but still quite presentable.

Hello Hasan,
Nice shot of this poisonous mushroom. I was just talking to a friend yesterday about this species of mushroom and he surprisingly said there are some types of Amanita that are edible.

Fantastic capture of this not often seen animal. Love those big reddish orange eyes with their coal black pupils. Excellent detail and beautiful color tones. Great use of flash.

Hello Marius,
Nice inflight capture of this Hooded Crow as it intimidates the much larger eagle. I see small birds and crows hassling hawks in this same manner quite regularly. Very sharp focus revealing excellent detail while showing beautiful natural colors.

Hello Laszlo,
Sorry to hear you were not able to recover your precious photos, we can still enjoy the ones you have restored like this beauty. I like the contrasting colors of deep crimson red against a mostly gray BG. Nicely composed in a square frame while displaying excellent detail.

Hello Raimundo,
The lighting was quite harsh, but you still managed to capture the true beauty of these colorful flowers. I like how they appear in different shades of yellow, red, and orange. This particular plant seems to produce very lush and dense foliage.

How exciting to see this new species for TN. I have never even heard of this one until now, it very beautifully marked, I especially like its bright yellow breast and rufous colored upper wing patch. A pleasure to view!!

A very pretty flowering plant that is in its seed stage. The reddish colored seed heads with white silk like hairs contrasts nicely with the grey boulders in the BG. I like the backlighting effect you managed to capture.

Hello Luciano,
I see you captured this cute little male in an attractive frontal pose. Seems to be busy feeding on nuts and doesn't mind having his picture taken. I actually did enjoy your series, there is not a day goes by that I don't see a number of these agile acrobats of the forest.
Sharply focused allowing us to view its colorful coat in fine detail. Wonderful eye contact with a bit of catchlight visible. The beautiful leaves make a very pretty BG.

What a lovely light blue iris you have presented to us. Your focus is right on the button revealing plenty of detail and clarity. The white tips are quite unique and add a nice contrast to the lush green stems. Perfectly exposed!!

A lovely bird indeed while displaying beautiful colors in its plumage. Even though the markings and colors are not the same it reminds me of our chickadees here in Ohio. Very sharp focus allowing us to view its uni The exposure is near perfect.

Hello Ishi,
Today your cute little Red Squirrel is gazing straight down at Luciano's Grey Squirrel. What a pretty specimen with lovely markings and beautiful colors. These tiny squirrels always seem to be hyper and almost never sit still for long. I love their adorable white eye markings and chattering calls.
Both this and your WS photos are superb shots!!

Hello Musa,
What a fantastic find, I have never seen anything quite like it. The fly is speared through its eye by an extremely sharp thorn. It obviously would have taken some unusual force to pierce it this way. Just a normal landing would never have caused such a thing. Perhaps a very strong burst of wind forced it downward into this precarious position or a bird could have been chasing it. Either way we will never know what actually caused its unique demise.
Your macro image is top quality In my opinion!!
