Hello Srikumar,
Fabulous shot of both mother and chick. I remember the first time I saw this particular species of coot chicks here on TN. I couldn't believe how colorful their plumage was compared to the adults. A top quality photo all around and a real eye pleaser!!

Hello Luciano,
As I sit here eating a cream stick and drinking coffee before starting my work day I get to enjoy viewing this colorful butterfly of yours. A lovely specimen displaying beautiful colors and sharp detail. The butterflies are pretty much gone for the season here in Ohio, you are fortunate to still have some to photograph.

Hello Laszlo,
Your latest post is just as nice as your first post from years ago. What immediately catches my eye in this shot is the beautiful droplets clinging to it which resemble honey. The wonderful lighting and excellent detail show it off in an attractive manner. TFS.

Hello Lou,
I can't remember ever seeing a mushroom growing on another species of mushroom, how unusual!! Outstanding shot of this unique occurrence. I love the contrasting coal black color of the rotting russula in comparison to the cream colored Powdery piggyback. Perfectly framed in an attractive composition. Tac sharp focus and just the right amount of exposure.

Hello Musa,
Your little plant certainly does appear to be slumped over a bit as if it is all tuckered out. Hopefully the rains will not be delayed this year so it doesn't have to remain in this position for long.
Very clear image giving us a well detailed look at this sad looking plant 🌴 :(

Fantastic action shot of this beautiful Hawk Moth. I know from experience how challenging these hovering moths can be when it comes to photographing them. You have captured it perfectly in this frontal position showing excellent detail and lovely color tones.

Great shot of this attractive fruiting plant. The three lobed leaf reminds me of those on a sassafras tree and the fruit looks similar to a crabapple. Excellent quality image as always!

Hello Ram,
What a lovely kingfisher you have presented today. It looks similar to one I saw in Africa. It seems there is a great numbers of this species all over the world with their own unique colors and markings. This particular type is a beauty for sure with rich contrasting colors and beautiful body features. TFS.

Hello Dietrich,
A nice overhead shot of this beautiful Sahara frog. It has very attractive markings and resembles some of the frogs I've seen here in Ohio. Its nose seems to be a bit more pointed then our Bull Frogs. Focus is sharp and it's always neat to view critters in their natural habitat.

Hello Ori,
I'm sure if you told most people these beautiful blooms are from wild garlic they would never believe you. The tiny flowers are absolutely gorgeous and the detail you managed to obtain is exceptional. An entire frame filled with such wonderful color and intricately marked petals.

Hello Musa,
A nice shot of this ever changing plant. My eyes are not as refined like yours, I'm sure you can easily detect these subtle changes as winter draws near. The bushes here in my region change drastically as the winter approaches, some turning bright yellow, orange or even red.
Very sharp focus and beautiful natural colors. Composed in an attractive manner.

Hello Dietrich,
What a chunky and beautifully colored hopper you have presented to us. Quite a bit different from the ones we have here in Ohio. Nicely focused and displaying very good detail. I rarely see grasshoppers sitting on open gravel like this, the ones around here are usually in the grassy fields. Well done!!

Hello Ram,
I guessed this was taken with your Sony Cyber shot HX50V as soon as I saw it. The quality of this combination is always exceptional. I really like these beautiful bright colored dragonflies of yours, red dragonflies seem to be a rarity here in Ohio. The insects here in Ohio are pretty much gone for the year, they will reappear next spring as always.
