This is a wonderfully artistic image that is most eye appealing. Everything about your shot is very nice.

Incredibly nice shot, Richard. It is both very sharp and vivid. Very fine work.

Thank you Mike!

Well Done!

Two exceptionally nice shots, Richard.

It appears as though the mocker is doing his mocking.  :p Nice one, Bill.

Two really nice shots, Paul. I like the composition of both, especially the first one.

Excellent shot, Tom.

Great shot, Shalu. Nice composition.

Thanks Mike.
I had a lucky day.
Happy trails:-)

Very nice, Mike! It seems males are harder to come by. I have shot females quite a few times, never had a male.

Great capture, Candor! I thought it was holding a broken apple snail :lol:

Congrats on the lifer!

Love the low angle shot!
