Very true, Tiz ... it's important to take an interest in each other's work, say a kind word when you can, help if you're able. Like you do! If people post photos and nobody ever says anything ... well, it's just like putting them in the folders.

Thank you so very much for the likes and the recent fantastic comments on this spotting. The words written here makes such a difference for the self-confidence and the passion to carry on learning about photography.

It makes me smile that all of us here actually are sharing our photos of wildlife. Imagine all those friends out there, that loves nature but just let the photos taken stay in folders on the computer. A lot of spottings of the day are just waiting to be discovered!!! :)

Schenker, Dan, Kate, Sunny, rams4d, Bhagya and Beaker... You are great!

Oh thanks sooo much! This is a special day for me, the first day back in Sweden. I just left Africa and the amazing biodiversity behind me, so now I guess I will only find some brown, boring moths in the near future... :P

Thank you for the great honor to Yasser and the PN team. Happy to represent us with this photo today!

Thank you Suz and Muckpuck for your comments :)

Have a great, great weekend all dear Noah folks!
Best ones from Sweden!
