On White Banded Grasshopper in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (2 comments in total)

Thanks Ruth for your comments! It is in fact a pomegranate tree, and I doubt if it actually eats it or not. These are very common here, so you can capture them often.
Gordon.

gordzam: Nice shot! And also shows that the Tamron 150-600 can perform quite well full open at nearly 600mm, and I'm glad as I own it as well. Test would let you believe that it's not that good. Congratulations cmantx!

Yes I had the 200-500mm before, but is one is noticably better. Also focuses better at longer focal lengths. Regards.

RuthC: The embedded EXIF data indicates that this photo was taken on September 6th 2007.

Yes, I copied the slide with a slide copier on my Digital Rebel, and the exif is from that file. (I got better results than my slide scanner.)

According to someone on a dedicated macro photography forum, it is a Plexyppus paykulli adult male. Thank you for your positive comments.

On Swallowtail in the Flowers & Butterflies challenge (4 comments in total)

Thank you very much for all the comments and votes! I really did not imagine I could place 1st as there were so many beautiful shots. I used a ring flash to fill in the shadows but mainly it's ambient lighting.

May have impressive test results, but I'm not particularly impressed by the real life images posted here.

Ian: Hell 1997 we saw the release of the Nikon Coolpix 100, I remember it well, dealers were frightened by the thought of digital cameras, now look.
Nikon had also released some years before the Nikon E2 and E3 what a Dinosaurs they were fantastic era, but my how technology has moved on. The E2 and E3 took PCMCA cards, that were hellishly expensive at about £12 per meg, so a 64 mb card was really expensive. The camera took Nikon MF lenses, it was just very slow to download images.
Canon were really no where at this time..

Check Canon Here in 1996:

On Hitting the sound barrier in the Capture the moment challenge (1 comment in total)

It's close to supersonic, but it's not! It might have made a very bad effect on you and your gear if it was. Nice capture.

On Migration in the Aircraft in sunset II challenge (2 comments in total)

Nice image, but surely manipulated, as the bright sunlight on the sea surface clearly shows that it's a daytime shot!
