Weaver's Fritillary by NigelKiteley

Weaver's Fritillary

Super shot Nigel! Saw my first of these in France too last year. Much earlier in the year though in early May so they must have two broods. I had been to the same site a couple of times in June when they didn't appear to be present so thought they only flew in spring. Clearly that's not the case, so maybe they just get lost amongst the many other different species that are present in June there.

The Tiddler. by Paintman

The Tiddler.

A stunning shot!

I have to say though, was it really worth the effort? For the Kingfisher I mean. Not exactly a very filling meal!

Red Dawn by SteveMackay

Red Dawn

Superb shot! When I first saw this I had a feeling it might end up POTW and indeed it has. Congratulations!!

Hehe nice composition, however they are both Male, so if this is love then something is wrong! Smile

skipper and seedhead by CarolG

skipper and seedhead

Haha whenever I see a skipper in this pose I know it must be one of yours and I was right once again! I don't know why nobody else wants to try this composition with the skippers.

That seed head is rather nice!

Escher's Blue by NigelKiteley

Escher's Blue

Very nicely done indeed sir! Smile

I must make more of an effort with identifying the blues. There are a lot of species that look very similar to Common Blues and I have yet to appreciate the subtle differences well enough to know when I'm looking at something that isn't a Common Blue and they often get overlooked by me as a result!

Grizzled Skipper by fishiee

Grizzled Skipper

Thanks. They tend to always roost on dead seed heads like this for camouflage but once you get your eye in they are quite easy to spot Smile

Adonis Blue

Another stunner Nigel. Great composition and complimentary colours!

Adonis Blues by NigelKiteley

Adonis Blues

Top quality shot. Stunning colours and a great tight composition. Looked pretty impressive when I saw it on my mobile a few days ago and looks as good as I hoped now I can see it on the big screen! Smile

Red Backed Shrike by ali63

Red Backed Shrike

A stunning little bird captured superbly. The bramble perch really adds interest to the image. Top class shot!

Brown Argus by NigelKiteley

Brown Argus

Super shot Nigel. Pristine butterfly with every detail captured perfectly. Nice seed head too. You seem to have more interesting ones where you get to!

Never managed to find many of these in good nick this year. I think I was hunting for other species when there were at their prime.

Dark Green Fritillary by NigelKiteley

Dark Green Fritillary

Stunning combination with the flower and butterfly. I missed the main DGF season this year as I was in Switzerland while they were at their best over here... the swiss butterflies more than made up for it though! Smile

You did well getting enough depth of field to get everything sharp. It would be nice if orchids were a bit thinner really for photographic purposes!!!

Small Postman by FeatherFriend

Small Postman

Excellent shot Geoff. You've done a fine job bringing out the details in the blacks here which can be challenging sometimes. Looks like the lighting was on your side for this one and you've made the most of it! Great job! Smile

Small Copper by Andy_brown

Small Copper

Very nice indeed Smile

Small  Copper by NigelKiteley

Small Copper

Pretty fine shot there Nigel and a nice pose too. I find these settled at odd jaunty angles most of the time like small heaths!

Bee approaching salvia with nikon V2 + 70-300 CX

Looks a pretty fine in flight shot to me Brian. Quite impressive for that setup handheld!

Fish with Headache by csurry

Fish with Headache

Super shot. The fish is a baby Tench which is actually a species that lives on the bottom rather than near the surface so I'm surprised to see a Kingfisher with one. I've certainly never seen a shot with one before so it's quite unique!

Pussy willow !! by bricurtis

Pussy willow !!

Awesome shot! You are definitely the undisputed king of the puss moth cat shot! Smile

Falcon 2 by ChrisBanks

Falcon 2

That is one awesome shot! You were pretty fortunate to have the dark sky behind to make the bright colours of the jet and the smoke stand out from the sky. You also managed to keep the shutter speed pretty high with a low ISO despite the dark sky so the details are pin sharp!

Makes my attempts at photographing the same aircraft look pretty naff and I have the same lens so that can't be it. It must be the camera that does it then! Wink

Seriously though, it's a stunner and well deserved of all the accolades!

Bath White by NigelKiteley

Bath White

Super detailed shot Nigel. Really like the complimentary background colour with this!

Is it just me or does it have exceptionally long antennae??

By: NigelKiteley

Garden Companion by Terry L

Garden Companion

Super detailed shot and great colours. You get some pretty good depth of field with that setup!

Lovely to see these in late summer, but at the same time it is a reminder that autumn is fast approaching!

Rose Sawfly (Arge pagana) Larva by Andy_brown

Rose Sawfly (Arge pagana) Larva

Great colours and details. The posture of these on the leaves always fascinates me, sollong as they aren't on my roses!!

Adonis Blue 2014 No 1

A real stunner!!

Almost There by ali63

Almost There

Love the composition!

That's either extreme birding with a macro lens, or you had the good sense to pack the macro as well as telephoto lenses when you went out birding Smile

By: ali63

Escher's Blue by NigelKiteley

Escher's Blue

Super detailed shot Nigel! I should make more of an effort with the blues in Europe. There are so many very similar to common blues that I often overlook them while looking for the more obviously different species!

By: NigelKiteley

Chalk-Hill Blue Aberation by BenKiteley

Chalk-Hill Blue Aberation

Super sharp shot Ben. I tend to see quite a few aberrations in chalk hill blues down my way and this year has been particularly good for them. Not sure why thereshould be so frequently seen in these. Maybe just because there are so many of them you have more chance of finding a funny one or two!

By: BenKiteley

praying mantis by sarasij

praying mantis

Excellent shot of a stunning Mantid! I have a bit of a think about Mantids though don't get to see the interesting one in my travels as much as I'd like to. This one is quite striking and captured exceptionally well as depth of field is often a struggle with these since they're quite chunky!

I'd maybe have been tempted to try lightening the background a little to see if the antennae could then stand out a little more as the top one does blend with the dark background a little.

I'm this big!

Now that is one serious spider!!

Chestnut Heath - (Coenonympha glycerion) by Andy_brown

Chestnut Heath - (Coenonympha glycerion)

Doesn't look too bad considering the lens was half falling apart at the time! If only we had a few of these more exotic looking heaths in the UK!
