    Please stop putting frogs on fungi, which misrepresents nature and is potentially harmful to the photo subjects, especially the frogs (by handling them).

    A photo and 'likes' for it are not important compared to the welfare of the subjects portrayed.

    Quote:Well spotted and captured. I bet you had to act fast to get the image, for fear of the frog jumping away?


    Not well spotted or requiring any fast reactions I'm afraid, because this and all the other frog on fungi shots are fake with the frogs picked up and put on the caps for a 'cute' photo. I and many other nature photographers deplore this practice.

    Nothing wrong with the butterfly but for me the composition doesn't really work due to the perch used. The blown out areas kill it - white can be a tricky colour to work with!

    Just my opinion for what its worth Adrian.

    Look forward to more marblies - have to travel to find them myself so a rare treat to photograph them!

    Female CBs like this are indeed a joy to behold when you see them in the field and you've gone and captured this beauty in a fine image too!

    Thanks Andy. In Rhodes, Greece. They're quite common in spring and one can see them in large numbers in the right habitat at the right time.

  • 'Sousoulidi' Savra for George!

    Thanks all Smile This was taken with a 100mm macro so I had to be pretty close to get the detail captured. It is all about patience, perseverance, luck and fieldcraft. I can easily spend 15-30 mins gaining their 'trust', or at least getting them to think I'm part of the landscape and no threat. Which calls for sloth like movement usually! Smile

    Which species is called Sousoulidi George? Anatololacerta oertzeni? Ophisops elegans?

    Glad to have made your day George Smile I'd like to get a shot of Platoni to upload one day too Smile Got any other local names of wildlife you'd like to share?

    Thanks to everyone else for their kind comments and votes too!

    Pretty wild weather isn't it! Today was very bad too, tons of rain & lightning. Sad about the lost lives. The road near the airport needs to be rebuilt so it bridges the river, not passes right on at the same level.

    Great composition and exposure control George. I've been in that exact position on Monte Smith many times and taken a few similar shots, but prefer yours. The clouds in the sky add something to it too, more interesting than the uniform blue so often over Rhodes.

  • Darwin's Heath?

    Pearly Heath. Darwin's doesn't have such a pronounced broad postdiscal band, which is very evident here.

    Agree about the area, which is why we've got a guided tour there and in Mercantour for July 2014, with Roger Gibbons - the authority on the butterflies in that area.

    Now, waffle over, it is a lovely shot so well done!
