  • Well, I guess for us here, the saying goes: 'No news is ...... no news!' That gem of information fills me with as much excitement as a wet weekend. :-( Ruth
  • Commented on Beautiful Calves challenge

    Um, swamynirmal, are you referring to baby cows etc., or the backs of people's legs, as in calf muscles? Just wondering. Ruth :-)

  • Commented on Storm over Long Reef in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    Joe, Now THAT'S what I call a thunderstorm! An awesome capture, in every sense of the word. Ruth :-)

  • Grasshoppers aren't my most favourite insects, gordzam, but I can certainly appreciate the beauty of this capture. It is very sharp and detailed, with lots of texture and depth of colour, with...

  • Commented on Egret Fish and Fly in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    Congratulations, Philip Lanoue, on yet another fantastic capture of birdlife in spectacular style. The pure whiteness of the egret is the first thing I notice, then the amazing and graceful...

  • Commented on Aurora in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    Congratulations, Parasin, on this superb capture of an Aurora in the cold Arctic sky. This deserves first place in this weekly challenge. This is a unique picture of a wonderful phenomenon, and it...

  • Nik2, this is a lovely picture which meets the theme of this challenge beautifully. Your African Violet looks very delicate with its white petals and bright yellow stamens against the velvety green...

  • This is a beautiful capture, Juerg Alean, and deserves a top place in this challenge. I really like the simplicity of the picture, one thin dark brown branch with five bright red berries still...

  • Commented on Spring's Song in the Nature's Delicate Beauty challenge

    This is a really beautiful spring picture, Arash Shakoorzadeh Boloori, and it deserves to be in third place in this 'Nature's Delicate Beauty' Challenge. The details of this picture are very fine...

  • Commented on Cratena peregrina in the Nature's Delicate Beauty challenge

    Congratulations, Janolus, on coming second in this 'Nature's Delicate Beauty' challenge. Your sensuous Cratena peregrina' sounds much nicer than its common name of ‘nudibranch sea slug’. This is a...

  • Commented on Two Contrasting Leaves challenge

    Folks, I am aware that there are a few entries here which don't adhere exactly to the 'Two ContrastingLeaves' theme of the challenge. I've decided to leave these entries in the challenge, and the...

  • Awesome picture, and it deserves first place in this challenge. Ruth :-)

  • Wow! What a fantastic capture, pen araneae, and what a view for the residents to wake up to each morning! Ruth :-)

  • Brian, if you click on 'Mark all read' in the message flag, they should all go away..... or that's the theory. Ruth :-)
  • This is a very dramatic capture, noiseless, and deserves to place in the top ranks of this challenge. The osprey certainly means business, with its sharp beak, even sharper talons and alert eyes to...

  • Commented on Reaching Out in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge

    Just when the Bird-Grumblers thought they had seen the last of hummingbirds for this year, you come along with this beautiful capture of a hummingbird in search of nectar. Wonderful colours and...
