In reply to:

cmantx: Great shot Percy. The eye is spot on. The 2 .5 votes definitely is unwarranted.

thanks Carmen, and yes your right but it did not bother me, it's part of of our lives here and I'm still enjoying participating this weekly photo challenge of Ruth. Congrats also on being 4th on this challenge.

Cheers,
Percy

On Red Shiny Head in the Naturally Shiny challenge (11 comments in total)
In reply to:

cmantx: That's a Great shot Percy! The Detail, especially the wings, and the beautiful red color against the lush green. I've seen a similar dragonfly here in TX especially near the Gulf Coast, but I haven't been able to get close to it. Good Job!

Thanks Carmen, The trick here is try to approach them when they're resting in the shades in noontime and or at night time because thy're also less active during that time, that's what i did in most of my Insects shots.

regards,
percy

In reply to:

cmantx: Great shot, and quite an achievement 1st and 2nd place. She seems to be anxiously looking your way. Do they actually protect the eggs from predators or place them in many different spots?

Thanks Carmen! actually there were plenty of mother jewel that time, and they took care every bunch of the eggs and the reason why i got a very decent focus and sharpness it's because this mother jewel did not move all along even when im very close to it.

In reply to:

The Mick: Hi PERCY2,
I really like this photo with all the color and detail you've shown. The pattern created by the arrangement of the eggs is another one of nature's beautiful details. The best part for me is knowing that there is another generation of little ones to come (as you've documented).
Thanks for sharing.
Mick

Thanks Mickey

In reply to:

RuthC: PERCY2, you've surpassed yourself in taking first and second places in this challenge! This is a beautiful capture of a jewel bug, protecting her newly-laid eggs. It must have been quite a difficult shot to take, considering the shine on her, as well as the eggs. Brilliant colours and textures throughout the picture. Ruth :-)

thank you so much Ruth.

On Macro - Reptile(s) challenge (2 comments in total)

Macro photography (or photomacrography or macrography, and sometimes macrophotography), is extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size (though macrophotography technically refers to the art of making very large photographs). By some definitions, a macro photograph is one in which the size of the subject on the negative or image sensor is life size or greater. However in other uses it refers to a finished photograph of a subject at greater than life size.(WIKI)

Just a "FYI"
