  • greenfinch

    Beautifully caught - having the bird against the sky really brings out its colours!

  • Then I saw red.

    Beautifully processed. I always have problems keeping the tiny 'fluffy' bits (hair, wool etc.). It looks so much more natural if those bits can be included!

  • Woody

    Lovely details.
    • 18 Jan 2018 6:26AM
  • Green Woodpecker

    Beautifully caught!

    I've only ever seen one once. I was walking around the front of the house and around the corner I startled one in the lawn.............he/she screamed and took flight, giving me quite a shock!! Grin

    Wow! Beautifully caught - the background is really complimentary too!

  • Scarlet elf cup

    I have a small area on the farm where these grow, I went down there just the other day and there was no sign of them! I shall have to go down at the weekend and have another look. You've caught your's brilliantly, they like damp, dark areas so aren't easy to photograph! Smile

  • Look but don't touch!

    Not a wasp................a Hornet! Beautiful colours and details, brilliantly caught!

    At first I thought it was an Alligator, but now I realise it's just a croc!! Wink

    Brilliantly caught, lots of lovely details!

    Beautifully caught - a little jewel amongst the bare branches!

  • Banded Demoiselle.

    Amazing colours and stunning details - brilliantly caught!
    • 15 Jan 2018 2:06PM
  • Let There Be Light - No! Fire's Dangerous

    This made me laugh out loud! Brilliantly thought out and produced! Grin
    • 15 Jan 2018 5:57AM
  • Snail

    What a beautiful snail - I've never seen one with such lovely colours before! Smile
    • 15 Jan 2018 5:52AM
  • Multidextrous!

    Brilliant timing - it's lovely to watch them being so acrobatic!

    I hope your new family member settles in quickly! Grin (Can't wait to see him).

  • Lake and wind turbines

    As you'd clicked 'Modifications', I couldn't resist a quick play! Smile It is a gorgeous scene, but I felt it would look even better without the partial windturbines.

    So, after putting it into Photoshop Elements and adjusting the 'Lighting' & 'Contrast', I used 'Clone' and 'Spot Healing' to take out all the part windturbine blades (I also removed the white blobs, which I assume were ducks). I also gave it a little crop (removing some of the bottom and left side). All minor tweaks, but I hope you approve! Smile

  • Apollo- Parnassius apollo.

    Such a beautiful butterfly, brilliantly caught and presented!
    • 13 Jan 2018 5:32PM
  • Little Grebe

    Brilliantly caught!

    There is a Little Grebe in Exeter (on the flood relief channel) - we often see it fishing as we walk into the city. Such lovely little birds!

    Loving the different colours!
    • 12 Jan 2018 2:55PM

    Beautifully presented - I'm sure I can see him smiling for you!
    • 12 Jan 2018 2:54PM
  • Glasswing butterfly

    Beautifully caught, these butterflies are gorgeous, really odd to see them in flight! I love Lantana flowers, I've tried growing it, but it hates my garden!
    • 12 Jan 2018 7:55AM
  • Diedericks Cuckoo

    Beautifully caught!

  • Nibbles

    Thank you everyone! Smile


    Quote:Watched one stripping buds from a forsythia yesterday.


    Although it looks as if everything is being stripped, the bushes/trees always seem to recover and have plenty of leaves in spring! Grin

  • Lapwing--Vanellus vanellus

    You've captured some beautiful colours in its plumage!
    • 11 Jan 2018 8:06AM
  • Take-off

    Brilliantly timed - lovely colours and details!

  • Milk run

    You've caught this slice of history beautifully.

    Churning milk into butter used to be as simple, as using a tall container with a lid and plunger - I suppose that's where the name originated. Churns can fetch a lot of money nowadays!

    We have a few churns left around the farm (the In-Laws used to milk cows until the Council decided our drinking water wasn't clean enough to wash the cows udders - they had to give up their cows then!). We still drink the spring water and never have tummy upsets - ok, it can be a bit murky every now and then, but it tastes so much nicer then the recycled chlorine 'townies' drink.

    Mum-in-Law has 4 painted 'barge-like' (black with brightly coloured flowers and hunting scenes), not my cup of tea, but she loves them.

    You've caught it brilliantly.
