xlynx9: Here's what I've been able to clarify via FAQ updates and staff communications today:

The missing "replace" feature was an oversight. They've now enabled it for all account types, but there's a bug currently breaking it for free accounts.

They've expanded renew options so anyone on pro can configure auto-renew to stay on pro indefinitely (you should do this now, no options after expiry).

I wonder how the adds are implemented ? Will they show up at places that would otherwise have been used for an image ? I can't check it myself, can't even find a way to log off my flickr account,

bcalkins: Hang on, did they double the price of a 'Pro' (= ad free) account? Yahoo may have just talked me out of spending any money with them next year...

Seems like it. I'm not that convinced I'll spend the double on that site. I have no idea how the free account will work though, but I guess it comes with a lot of not so nice stuff.

Thank you for bringing my minifigure space suit design into space :-)
It also made it to the Space Station about a year ago.

(unknown member): My biggest wonder about macro is this:

How on earth do you get something such as an insect to stay where you want it to be whilst you set up the shot?!

If you want natural images, you don't catch the insects. It's quite simple. And if you hope to capture images showing behavior, it''s quite obvious.
Finding, approaching and photographing insects is something you learn by trial and error. It takes time, and more time.

On article What we want in a macro shot - POV and special scenes (25 comments in total)

If I would go so close as to cut of the abdomen on the dragonfly (first image), I would surely cut of more, and bring the eyes down a bit from the edge of the image.
I am quite sure that in the last image, the male and female are of the same species. The female just lack the wing bands.
Nice images.
