Your gift for understatement is on display.

 

That's a heckuva magnificent dragonfly-in-flight image.

 

Not only are you Safaritalk's resident BIF master, but you do dragonflies too!

 

What's next? Bats?

 

Thank you for posting this outstanding image. I'm sorry that I'm only seeing it now.

Moth Drinking Eye Fluid

 

Photographed at 7:42 am on 18 February, 2017 in Kruger National Park, South Africa, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.

 

ISO 800, 1/2500 sec., f/2.8, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.

This female Greater Kudu was standing beside the road, motionless and alert. Her stance facilitated this fairly close portrait under heavily overcast skies.

 

A moth was drinking eye fluid from her right eye, its long tongue extended to the moist section lubricating the eyeball.
