    Actually, those Killifish is around 10cm., but macro lens make it HUGE…[​IMG]

    Congrats Hristo, no doubt in my mind some of those shots would win. You always shot fantastic photos of your killies and other fish.

    Wow Hristo, you have to let others have a chance.... You are way up there my friend unless Norbert decides he want to have a go at killies! LOL.

    I will concentrate on bigger easier subjects... even plants. LOL.

    [FONT=&quot]And here is a Killi “Love story” about:

    Hey, men…you know – if there is a Pretty Woman…[​IMG] or even not exactly “Pretty” one…[​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    …there are always two rival Lovers, get ready to conquer her love…[​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [/FONT][FONT=&quot]…The Proud Winner…[/FONT][FONT=&quot][​IMG][/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [​IMG]

    …”Dancing cheek to cheek”…and “Love me tender” in Killi’s version…[​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    …So, you know pretty well how that story goes on…
