Beautiful images, Wim! :) I especially like the second image. Does that rotifer create an external tube to retract into?

Hi ya', Carlo. These are as nice of butterfly images as I have seen in some time. The quality of the images is quite high. I visited your web site and found gallery after gallery of exceptional images. Well done! :D

Goodness gracious, Charlie. These are wonderful images! I especially like #2. I can see how a copepod would be slowed down by all the hangers-on! These are wonderful images. :)

Paul, I like all of your images. These are some pretty wild looking harvestmen. I've never seen harvestmen with so many spines and with such large pedipalps. I find the images made with UV light to be somewhat eerie and attractive at the same time. Thanks for a nice series of photos. :)

This is a very interesting rotifer and you have captured it nicely. I am especially fond of image 2. Nice details in the rotifer.

This is quite a striking microfossil. I love the color of the microfossil and I also like the foreground reflection and the treatment of the background. This is a fine image.

I love macro images of butterfly/moth wing scales. I especially like number 1. It reminds me of the skeins of colored ribbons you find in a fabric store. This is a fine series of images. :)

This is a very interesting algae. I would not have guessed these are colonial. Looks like a loose gathering to my eyes. Thanks for the additional details.

Two more dragonflies...

I would set my camera to give me a nice, sunlit background exposure but I used electronic flash to light the dragonflies. Male Roseate Skimmer... http://...
