    Yes, 4 is quite nice, I did not give it the signed frame because that one is a 60% crop, though upon closer thinking about it, it was sharp enough to really do well with this crop and might merit a signed frame, too.

    It might not show in the condensed version, but the last is very sharp - and all uncropped - on the wings.

    I came rolling (on rollerblades) by that same thistle again yesterday morning (AFTER my little accident, mind, I had not given up on my planned tour ;)) and it was morning (about 8:15 or so) and the thistle was all empty. No one around. So I begin to believe this "restaurant's" opening hours are not before 11:30 a.m. - it only serves lunches, I guess ;) ;) ;).

    Heehee :lol:, I'm glad we could be of help, Monika, and for once communicate in a language that is easier for you to understand than English (but then I must say I admire you for speaking such good German when I gather your mothertongue is Polish, so you are clearly bilingual, too!)

    And Sabine was expressing her disgust with the hover fly in Photo 4, for she does not like them - and therefore could not even begin to like that photo technically or so. She only sees that hover fly in it and that's it.

    And she says that the butterfly in Photo 2 is a rare and endangered species but she no longer remembers its name. Something with "blood so-and-so"... I don't remember, either, I'm afraid... :oops:

    WOW fantastic photos there :) i am not sure i agree on 6 as the best as i like 4 and 3 too, but those are the three for me, the crispness does it over the composition. It is amazing that there can be such a flourishing ecosystem on one little flower, you can sit and watch for hours and not see the same thing twice. keep em comming.
