Hi Silvio,
this must be a first on TN. I never heard of a Riodinid butterfly whose larvae specialise on Primula before ... You not only photographed it well but presented it to TN. A special thanks for the detailed description in the note !
My best regards, Dietrich

Hi Ori,
I like the contrast achieved with a flash, it sets the flower nicely apart from the environment. In your "Photo info" it says "Flash did not fire".
Are the granules flower buds or unripe fruits? The wilted leaves suggest the latter.

Hi Ian,

your exotic (for me, a Swiss) pictures from Tasmania on TN are a great joy. I also wish to make you a compliment on the extensive notes. Please continue to publish material on TN.

Hi Laurens,
you are seeking perfection! Your long familiarity with the mediterranean fauna shows too. The combination of both is irresitible !
Thanks Laurens for the presentation of many Buprestids on TN and for your instructive workshops.
Chapeau and Greetings to you, Laurens Dietrich

Hi Luciano,
very good, a first time on TN! I admire your way that you identify the Geometridae species. I use the "Guide des papillons nocturnes de France" (R. Robineau et al. 2007) but the pictures are small and I spend hours guessing.
My best regards to you, Luciano.

Dear Laurens,

I like your Oil beetle, you got it in focus from head to tail ! I found a web site for ID of Meloë: http://www.coleo-net.de/coleo/texte/meloe.htm. With this list of European species I arrive at Meloë proscarabaeus (L.). largely due to the nicked antenna, the black colour and the body proportions.

I did some work in the late 60ties on raising

Hi Ron,
Beautiful butterfly, great composition, colors and contrast. Brilliant playing with shadows and lights. However, I feel the wings are a bit oversharpened. Not much, just a touch.

Hi Sri,
The photo's gorgeous, I love everything on it from lights to timing, but first of all composition, of course. However, personally I feel you were too sharp with Luciano in your answer.

Hi Luciano,
Good evening neighbour! Beautiful composition, excellent macro. I feel the wing, especially the upper part, could be a little sharper, otherwise good shtuff. :-)

Hello Dietrich,
Thank you very much for your NOTE,again. Well captured picture although bit flat due to lack of solid composition and focusing point, IMHO. Good details and colors. Landscape looks better from a distance to me.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and keep shooting,

Hello Dietrich,
Informative NOTE. Beautiful landscape. I like its colour. Well exposure and even shadow area details look good. I like the way you framed it giving more importance in the foreground than sky.

Hi Luciano,
it is very good and you know it certainly. What if you lower the Colour temperature? Maybe the butterly would even more stand out with its interesting colours. And maybe this is a matter of taste and of the reigning light condition. Just a thought.
I wish you a pleasant weekend ! Dietrich

Hi Hasan,
now I know that Peonia is out in the wild in your part of the country, beautiful ! I have only one problem with the picture, you turned it sidewise. It is also quite clear why you did it, the TN site does not present pictures in portrait position well. A way out would be to show the same picture on your own website and make a link in the note of the TN picture. It works, I tried it (see ). It is explained summarily in "About/ FAQ/ 12".
Greetings, Dietrich

Hi Biswarup,
I like your White throated Kingfisher a lot because it's an "unusual" shot from behind and somewhat below, the sun behind you. Good ! In this way the brilliant blue colours dominate. The only small problem is the focus which is not on the eye. Thanks for presenting the wonderful bird. Greetings, Dietrich
