Hi Luciano,
Sorry for my late reaction. First of all thank you very much for your dedication, however, the most important thing at this moment is fighting against the virus, because the world, and especially Italy, is in trouble now. But I truly hope rather sooner than later, this crisis will be over and you, we, everyone can leave their houses and can enjoy life itself - although an economic crisis is coming as well, very unfortunately. Anyway, we still be alive... Interesting photo, nice spring image. May it be a sign of the order after the chaos. God save Italy, god save humanity.
Kindest regards from Irelnd, László

Hi Luciano,
It's good to know you're more or less fine in the current horrifying situation in Italy, and I wish you can walk to the nature again quite soon, to take as magic photos as this one. Perfect compo, sharpness and color saturation. Cheers!

Hi Lou,
Beautiful and interesting ascomycetes in your gallery again. The shot is nice and sharp, I'd crop a bit more from both sides, though. Thanks for contributing to my theme Ascomycetes 2. (I added the photo).

Hi Alexandr,
Nice shot overall, but I'd crop more from left to off-center the composition. The imaage could be a bit sharper also, especially the plumage - did you re-sharpen the pic after re-sizing?

Hi Lou,
3 fantastic macro shots, I've never seen such good photos of the teleomorph stage of this species, with so many tack sharp details. Hats off for you! Let me add your photo to my theme Ascomycetes 2. (as this species is an ascomycota).

Hi Lou,
Very interesting tremelloid basidiomycota, not known to me previously. Index Fungorum lists Platygloea disciformis (Fr.) Neuhoff as the current scientific name. Beautiful presentation with 3 great photos.

Hi Biswarup,
Beautiful photo. Excellent timing and shutter speed to clearly capture the pose, everything is sharp on the plumage. Great exposure and colors as well. Probably the bird is a bit too small in the frame - otherwise an exceptional image, congratulations!

Hi Luciano,
I've had no doubt you'll be the first here with a recent butterfly shot in this year again, and your model will be the common brimstone. Very smart composition, the wings perfectly hide the sun, so major overexposure isn't visible, great usage of backlight. Nice textures on the wings as well. Excellent shot, congratulations!
Kind regards, László

Hi Luciano,
It's only February, but I already miss the lovely summer butterflies... This species is common at home in Hungary, but I haven't seen it here in Ireland yet. Your photo is lovely, with excellent sharpness, composition and color saturation. I love it!

Hi Lou,
So tiny, but so beautiful! I find cyphelloid fungi extremely attractive. Great photo, congratulations! I know most cyphelloidas cannot be identified without microscope, so just a hint: probably your photo shows Merismodes connivens (P. Karst.) Knudsen? At least the macroscopic features and the fruiting time correspond.

Hi Luciano,
Wonderful portrait of the big "doggy". Good composition, it doesn't seem incomplete to the viewer at all, even though the legs aren't in the frame. Congratulation for the great photo. And I also understand your surprise about the size: I felt exactly the same when I found this species - much larger than I ever expected.

Hi Srikumar,
Great, great, great! Absolute beautiful jackal portrait with, in spite of the big distance, excellent sharpness. Grass blades and the flowers are framing the "doggy" well. Nice pose from them, excellent timing from you. Brilliant image!
