Hello Jacqueline,
What a wonderful idea for a collage, the images individually are worthy of a posting. Great work Jacqueline, thank you.

Hi Jacqueline,
I think you have done well in creating this collage and as you have smaller photos involved and the noise and poor focus you speak of is not readily seen,I think that is a very creative way to still use one's own photos! My two favourite colours are yellow and green so this photo caught my eye as soon as I saw the thumb in the gallery so I just had to have a look.Thanks for sharing this little collection of insects with us as it shows you really do enjoy taking photos of wildlife.


Hi & Good Morning MF Jacqueline,

Wonderful collage showing the visitors of the buttercups. Very educative. Each one great MF!
TFS and have a nice week!


Hi Jaqueline,
an very beautiful collage.
Sharpness with macro is difficult expecionally with bad weather and wind.
We have in the netherlands always wind so i take there most macro with 640 iso instead of 200 or 320 iso.
Good different compositions and blurred bg.
Fine colours.I don't know rthe good english words byu your collage are very good made by you.

Hello Jacqueline,
A fine collage showing how useful buttercup flowers are to insects!
No. 4 is a Solitary Bee and No.9 a Great green Bush-cricket nymph, while No.2 is Euclidia glyphica, a day-flying noctuid moth. I cannot ID tha spider and the beetle.
Theough the images are a little soft this is a great contribution to TN.
Thanks and have a good week,

Hallo Jacqueline
What a great idea, which ended up beautifully. This collage with its individual photos are really very beautiful and eye-catching. Not only is the yellow Buttercup a lovely flower it also seems to be a great attraction for the insects. I am sure it must be sunny colour that attract them to the flower, and then it surely must be filled with lots of pollen. Each image is a beauty on its own, but I personally like the last one with the green grasshopper as the contrast between the green and yellow is very striking. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hi Jacqueline,

What a great idea! I can certainly sympathize about having too much noise and not being able to do much with the shots. Your solution worked out well. The collage is very colourful and makes good use of shots that you couldn't use before. TFS.

Hello Jacqueline,
Your first collage is an original and very beautiful one. Very creative. Looks lovely with all these visitors. Fantastic composition in very nice colours.

Ooooh, Jacqueline, das ist ja bezaubernd.
Diese verschiedenen Gäste auf der gleichen Blütenart, diese Zusammenstellung gefällt mir so sehr, ganz tolle Post, lieben Dank.
Jedes Bild für sich ist super - aber am meisten gefällt mir persönlich die Skorpionsfliege.
Lieben Dank und viele Grüße

Bonjour Jacqueline,
Une très bonne idée de nous montrer les divers visiteurs de renoncules. On peut ainsi voir que c'est une fleur attractive pour une grande diversité d'insectes. L'idée d'un assemblage est bonne, la présentation pourrait êter sujet à discussion, mais je vois que les solutions ne sont pas si évidentes. Un grand merci aussi de tes gentilles visites à ma galerie.
Bonne fin de semaine

Hello Jacqueline,
What an attractive and interesting idea you came up with. I simply love it and all the individual photos. Your beautiful collage shows us in a wonderful way the many types of colorful insects that are attracted to this particular flower. Super original idea, and done in fine fashion!! TFS.

Hello Jacqueline,
With the present lack of insects here this is really a feast for the eyes! A most impressive multitude of insects all nicely captured on Buttercups. A lovely presentation!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Bonjour Jacqueline

Superbe ce montage.Tous les photos semble bien en focus et elle ont toute de superbe couleurs.Bonne variété de specimens également
Merci Michel

Hallo Jacqueline,
quel fantastique collage.
Merci et félicitations
Ciao Maurizio

What "software" are you using???
Hope I see such work once more.
I know how difficult it is to make a collage... this one has been done with TASTE.
Mario from Canada with many many BRAVOS....

Bonjour Jacqueline,

What a fantastic masterpiece, Madame! I like collages very much, unfortunately my sparetime is too limited now to create something like this. But Your mosaic is awesome, and with full of good ideas. For example each insect's on yellow flowers, which makes the whole work homogeneous; and there's only a few other colors beside green and yellow, which helps to create nice color harmony. Hats off of You for this effective ptresentation.

Off topic: to the pic which You dedicated to me I wrote the ID of the fungi is Agaricus benesii (Pilát) Pilát. Agaricus is a very difficult genera, but I just finished another short course about them, so I must correct myself. That pic entitled "For László" without doubt shows Agaricus bisporus (J.E. Lange) Imbach. I'm sorry for writing it after such a delay - but now You can correct the note. :)

Tfs, friendly regards, László

Bonjour Jacqueline!

Excellent idea! I like these yellow flowers and visitors. I can recognise few species, but red-black beetle is something new to me. Superb post and observation.

Wow! Great awareness!
