[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I planned to share next picture of beautiful bird (this season is rich in bird-shooting trophies). Unfortunately, today situation in Ukraine is changed dramatically again. Russian troops invaded the territory of Ukraine and occupied the city Novoazovsk which is located just near Mariupol (40 km) where my many friends live and where recently I worked few nice years at local University.

Sharing this close-up I do not stop to think why until now in XXI century some state governors continue to think and act like wild animals or even worse than wild beasts, how many people should be killed, how many towns and villages should be destroyed, to satisfy their own miserable ambitions.

I believe and hope that only joint efforts of all civilized people can stop this “plague”.

Hello Alex,
Sorry to be so late.
I was not so soften on TN during the last months.
Most interesting shot with three creatures, one the "eater" the others the prey and all this on a lovely daisy.
Well seen, well done.
Hope you are fine in these troubled period in your country.
Kind regards

Hello Alexei

Great macro of death and life from the world
of insects, the animals they kill only to eat
when they are hungry, they don't know wickedness
like the humans ! Best wishes for you,
your friends and family, TFS


Dear Alexei, great lights and accurate details,
We all wish, we will put the war in THE RUBBISH BIN, and love in THE RECYCLE BIN, in our planet Earth(our home) for ever and ever:-)

Hello Alexei,
A very interesting picture! very well exposure, sharpness and details are excellent, a very well seen and nicely done,
Thank for sharing and have a nice weekend,
Best Regards,

Privet Alexei,
Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful, metaphorical image. What's the worst, those who could help, are just looking at the invasion with folded arms. Although this is not a war demanded by the evolution (maybe by "devilution").
Best regards, peace for Ukraine, László (the Hungarian from Ireland)
