as a moderator for TN I am sorry but your horse classes as domesticated as I think you will see from this excerpt for the book of Wiki.
The Konik is a Polish horse breed descending from very hardy horses from the Biłgoraj region. These horses had a predominantly dun colour, but also black and chestnut horses were present in the population.[4] Some researchers claim these foundation animals were hybrids with wild horse breeding that had been sold to farmers by the zoo in Zamość in 1806, which were bred to local domesticated draft horses.[4] However, genetic studies now contradict the view that the Konik is a surviving form of Eastern European wild horse, commonly called the tarpan, nor is it closely related to them. The Konik shares mitochondrial DNA with many other domesticated horse breeds and their Y-DNA is nearly identical.[5][6]

During World War I, these horses were important transport animals for Russian and German troops and were called Panje horses.[4] In 1923, Tadeusz Vetulani, an agriculturalist from Krakw, started to get interested in the Panje horses, a landrace of Biłgoraj and coined the name 適onik (Polish for 都mall horse), which is now established as the common name for the breed. During the 1920s, several public and private studs were created to conserve this animal.[4] In 1936, Vetulani opened a Konik reserve in the Białowieża Forest. He was convinced that if horses were exposed to natural conditions, they would redevelop their original phenotype.[4] While Vetulani's experiments are well-known and widely publicized,[7][8] his stock actually had only a minor influence on the modern Konik population.[4] However, World War II marked the end of Vetulani痴 "breeding back" project. His stock was moved to Popielno, where they continued to live in semiferal conditions. Popielno became the breed痴 main stud during the 1950s, but the herd was also preserved by buying animals from Germany.[4]

Between the two world wars, the German brothers Heinz and Lutz Heck crossed stallions of Przewalski's horse with mares of the Konik horse, as well as mares of other breeds such as the Dlmen pony, Gotland pony, and the Icelandic horse, to create a breed resembling their understanding of the tarpan phenotype. The result is called the Heck Horse.[9] Other breeders crossed Koniks with Anglo Arabians or the Thoroughbred to increase their quality as a riding horse.[4]

Hi John an intresting set of spring woodland inhabitants.
1st to identification
1) is a Hybrid form of Primula vulgaris (primrose) yes I know it is not all Yellow but Primula's hybridise very easliy with other members of the family with the help of the local bees, I am forever weeding out the multicoloured one that grow up in my native woodland garden.
2) The Puple flower is an early purple orchid Orchis maculata

3) the Myosttis is nicely framed but the flowers seem to be in front of the focus point. I sugest the use of single point focus to allow you lock your focus on the front of the flower instead of the leaves behind
4)the Orange tip male is very nicely caught with it seeming to be well in focus and a good seperation with it and the well out of focus background, the best photo of the set, maybe a touch of burn tool of hightlight reduction on the white to tone them back a just a little.
5) the Lycaena helle , not a species I am familiar with the butterfly its self not quiet sharp and the flower is completly over exposed, did you use flash to expose this image? , if so next time reduce the power of the flask or expose image for the flower then use shodow and highlight type tool to bring the exposure up on the butterfly.
Thank you for sharring yours Robert

Hi there Bhaskar,
Intresting image, glad you added the note to explain why you are handling the chick. I have always said since we started TN as a wildlife site that the acompaning notes were often as important as the I image, and can mean the differance between a reported image being deleted and one like this being allowed to stay.
would be intresting to see images of its progress.
Yours Robert TN Moderator

Hi Gary, intresting capture,
the duck is very definatly a Muscovy, I do not have my diffinative book on wild ducks to hand, but if I rember correctly the true species ouccours up through central America and up into California, so it is possible that it is a wild one..
What helps its case is the crest and the slimness of the general build of this duck. the domesticated one is generally of a heavier build having been selected for meat production, and usually more colourful.
If it is a true Muscovy then if I rember right this is possibly only the second one posted to TN, and believe me I have looked at alot of them in my capasity as moderator to TN since we started the site.
if I was to make a slight comment on the image it would be to say the beak could do with some of the highlights there darkening back a fraction, possibly with the burn tool set to 0% hardness (softest edge possible) and tohighlights and 9% strenght.
Thank you for sharing yours Robert

Hi Kalyan,
Very intresting images, I know the TOS for the site has been changed recently, to say that images of animals in zoo should not contain images of their cage, "why the change I dont know" but your image and short note make a very valide point about animals in cages. Thank you for posting it and I will not be removing it as has been requested.
Yours Robert Brown (TN Moderator)
ps. a slightly longer note about the image and what happened to the unfortunate Tiger (thank you for sharing

Hi Matt glad to see you managed to get this image posted, what was the solution in the end?
the details in the inficus area are stunning as are the vibrant colours.
getting the tail sharply into focus would of made the image perfect the use of a higher F. stop say around F11 or even F16, I find it worth shooting such images at all these settings if you get the time to do so the pick the shot you perfer when you get it up on the big screen of your comp.
TFS hope your problems are over, yours Robert

Hi Gloria, good to see a post from you, they look a little like carp, as they are found all across the far east as well as europe but they could be any species as fish tend to be opertunist and free feeds like this produce hughe fish. a lake local to us has people who come to feed the ducks and swans but the carp have learnt to feed off the floating crusts and I have never seen so many fish over 30lbs weight at any one time well over 30 of them.

Welcome to TN Rebecca, Intresting 1st post, while it is not an Orchid I can understand why you might think so from the helmet shape of the flower it is infact the very invasive weed Himalayan balsam (Impatiens glandulifera) its presence in this southern German river valley means you have lost a lot of native wild life both plant and animal to its rampant growth.
Good clear image shows both flower and seed well, a minor thought would be to include all the flower in the top right side, it would give the image a better visual balance.
TFS (Thank You for Sharing) yours Robert

Hello Josep, looks very much like a canna lilly, type the name into a search engine and compare the result.
Unfortunatly this is classed on TN as a domesticated plant and would normally have just been removed, but as you asked for an identification I thought I would try and answer your question, but this does still mean that the image needs to be removed from TN, maybe you could repost it on TL which has an open posting policy.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask either direct or though the forum.
Yours Robert brown (TN Moderator)

Hello Christian , intresting image, not a distorted flower but a leaf that has been attacked by a type of Gall wasp, the adult lays an egg or eggs in the surface of the leaf in this case though it could be the flower or leaf bud or even stems. the egg releases chemicals which cause the plant to produce abnormal growth / swellings which form a container for the wasp larvae to develope in. each wasp species usually has a very specific host plant and also causes a very distinctive type of gall or leaf distortion so if you know the type of plant it is usually easy to name the wasp responsable. Unfortunatly I do not recognise the shrub from the small amount of normal plant in your picture. The splitting doown the middle is caused by the uneven growth of the leaf tearing it apart.
Also there are some moulds which can have the same efet but there are not as many of them, again knowing the plant is key to iddentiefying it.
Hope this is of some use. TFS Robert

Hi Tadeusz, It is definatly one of the Puffballs there are two it could possibly be 1) Spiny Puffball (Lycoperdon echinatum)
2) Dusky Puffball (Lycoperdon nigrescens)
the later is the most likely because it prefers acid soils which also Blueberries need to grow in.
hope this is of help?

Thanks for having the courage to post it in full colour and not the B&W, it is not over the top and you surply a superb note with it.
The only change I would make would be to lighten the shadowed areas with either curves or levels to allow some more of the hidden detail to show theough.

Lovely set of flying ducks, lots of details for a distance shot.Silly question time now, how did you line the shot up, I find my 2-400 F4 and the 1.7 does not seem to focus fast enough or give as sharp an image any tips for settings would be gratfully recieved.

Hello Ilya,
Thanks for clearing up the uncertany over this beautiful Violet, love the colour and shape of it . TFS yours Robert
(Previous critque before ajustment of note)"are you saying this is a wild flowergrowing in your garden or a flower you grow all around your garden. I ask because an image of this flower was requested to be removed because it was thought to be a cultivated hybrid viola of which there are several hundred hybrids in cultivation.
If you have any questions please feelfree to ask, yours Robert
Ps this is a much better veiw of the flower than the removed one."

Hi Bob an intresting POV of these cinnabar caterpillars, what intests me more though is the plant they are on, which appears to be a Stinging Nettle/Urticaria which is not in the same plant family as its food plant the Ragworts and other close relative in compositae (the daisy family)which also inclueds Colts foot which can be an alternative food plant, but not Nettle. so to me it is strange there are so many on a plant not suitable for them?
