RuthC: This is a great capture, Abbasi46, and well deserves a top place in this challenge. Wonderful communication between the two ants. Ruth :-)
RuthC: Congratulations, Abbasi46, on coming second in this challenge. I really like the colourful activity you have captured with the ant milking the aphids. Aren't insects amazing? Ruth :-)

RuthC: Congratulations, Abbasi46, on achieving a top spot in this challenge. Beautiful colours, and a different take on most hover fly pictures. Ruth :-)
The Mick: This one is quite unique! Fine job and congratulations on the 2nd place!
MasterCBC: Hi, I think you made a mistake selecting the lens. Your picture said 300mm in focal length, but the lens you choose it's a Sigma 150mm. Please check this out, sorry if I wrong. Nice picture by the way.
with 2X Teleconverter it becomes 300mm...you should look at the note! The camera register both the lens and the TC
AnastasiaMarieAnne: Very Beautiful!
peroz: congratulations !!! super shot !!!
Jen003: Fabulous shot and deserving winner. Congratulations!
RuthC: Congratulations, Abbasi46, on your bee-utiful capture! A very well-deserved top spot in this challenge. You have achieved a wonderful depth of focus, and the colour gradations in the flower are beautiful. I love the bumblebee's white pants! Ruth :-)
Thanks Ruth for the nice comment .I love and admire these beautiful friends for their big help they do for us and the environment!
In this picture a ladybird beetle feeding on an aphid insect. Ladybird beetles helping against harmful insects in our fields and gardens, they are a sign of healthy environment !
The Mick: One of my favorites! Just a beautiful photo! My younger daughter said it reminds her of one of the Lorax trees. ;o)BTW, I've never seen a bumblebee with white on the lower abdomen like that. Is it some type of hybrid? Either way, congrats on such a nice capture!
Thanks for your nice comment, We have many species here in Uppsala, they are buzzing around in our beautiful Swedish nature :-)
Thanks. I paid with my blood to win the 1st place in this challenge! This picture was taken during my usual photography promenad 2 years ago! I killed it after I got my great shot :-)
