Hello Paul,
Nice choice for the title! They are driving their ball also! They might be a Messi and Ribery in their kind, who knows!
We, Turkey is not there but anyway we will have the enjoyment of watching!

Hallo Paul,
Leuke symbolische foto, genomen vanuit en goed laag standpunt in uitstekende scherpte en mooie natuurlijke kleuren. Zweden is er niet bij, maar 'wij' wel. De gekte is hier al aardig los gebroken, alles is oranje.
Goed weekend,

Hahaaa, I love this post - the title together with this motive - and on this day - is wonderful.
It's amazing to see the small bugs with this big ball. Very well captured, I like it so much.

Hello Paul,
Excellent capture of this pair of Dung Scarabs at work.
The humour and symbolism at this time of the Soccer WC is very appropriate and the quality of the image great.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Hej Paul,
I see you've saved this up for the big occasion!! What a great idea, it's a superb shot of the two busy Beetles; well timed, very sharp and well composed. Great!!
Many thanks and cheers, Ulla

Funny title to this picture Paul :>
I like also documentary value of the photo, there are not too many pictures presenting Scarabaeidae beetles in such way :)
All the best,

Ha ha Paul,
