Really frustrating - I'm sure this is a fine series but for 90% of the shots this is all I can see (below) - it is only happening on this site (the images are loading incredibly fast - which is probably part of the problem) - anyone any ideas as to what is happening ? Sorry Mole - don't want to hijack your thread !

I hope it is something external, like your cable service. Macs are getting so popular that hackers will be targeting them with viruses, if they haven't been already. Make sure you have downloaded the latest security update from Apple (I just got one yesterday).

Mole, it is a bug eat bug world out there, isn't it? You are observant to find and document these little dramas and then skillfully weave them into your essays.

Another absolutely wonderful series, Mole. Your photo essays make me wonder how many fascinating survival dramas I walk right past whenever I tramp through the woods and open fields. I'll have to make a concentrated effort to pay closer attention to all the small details.

Regarding the Clematis, I think it's a very nice shot. But the bright green background does pull the eye away from the flower. A quick levels adjustment could make the white flower stand out by making it a bit brighter. But that would probably also brighten the green background, which might still out-compete the main subject for the viewer's attention. I'm sure it would be possible to select just the white flowers and do a levels adjustment on only that portion of the photo, but now we're getting beyond the limits of my very basic photo editing skills. If my suggestion has any merit at all, I hope a more knowledgeable member will chime in with more specific suggestions.

Thanks Penolta - but it's only this site for some reason (just tried Pentax forums again - no problem whatsoever).

Phenomenal detail as always!

The spider, acorn and first photo are just amazing.
