Hello, Jeroen! I would never have guessed that I would "bump into you" again like this - prescient timing... A lovely grebe, along with a nice reflection. Now for some "penguin dancing" shots? I hope all is well with you.
Best wishes, Nigel.

Hi, Dijana
This is a very nice photograph of Pontia daplidice. P. protodice is a similar American species. A little more cropping and a less centralised presentation would have improved the image in my opinion.
Best wishes, Nigel.

Absolutely beautiful, Peter - this species is very hard to get right because of the sharp contrast between the blacks and whites, so early or late shooting is "the order of the day." I just hope you shot another image or two capturing the bird's full reflection ;)
Best wishes, Nigel.

Jiri,
That is a nicely presented and very sharp image. The insect is, however, not a caddisfly but an Alder Fly Sialis lutaria. The adult insects are similar to caddisflies but the larvae are very different. This species belongs to the order Megaloptera rather than the Trichoptera.
Best wishes, Nigel.

Marius,
It's a super photograph, but your Greenfinch is actually a female Chaffinch Fringilla coelebs.

Silvio,
Perfect portrait, but it's a female Chapman's blue Polyommatus (Agrodiaetus) thersites. Although this insect lacks the cell spot of P. icarus, as does Aricia agestis, it lacks the offset first pair of black spots at the front edge of the underwing that is diagnostic of Aricia agestis or A. cramera.
Regards, Nigel

Laurens,
This is nicely done given how little DOF you have to work with even at F/22 with such a small subject. I am pretty sure it's a male of Lasioglossum morio.
Regards, Nigel.

Geoffrey,
Beautiful insects, but not fruit-flies. this is a pair of the Large Green Long Legged Fly Chrysosoma leucopogon. All your exposure settings and the focus look spot-on.
Regards, Nigel.

Hi, Aleksander
That is a nice moth, shot in hard light - but it is a Cinnabbar Moth Tyria jacobaeae, rather than a burnet. The common Zygaena species have clubbed antennae, more spots and no red bar on the forewing.
Regards, Nigel.

Pierre,
Peter is very close - it is Heliconius ismenius. It is perhaps a little small in the frame, but the image nicely illustrates the posture and habitat of this delicate species.
Regards, Nigel.
