9. Magnificent of Sunbird by Budi Gunawan
I was observing some birds at a city park, trying to learn about sunbirds, and I saw this one bird always coming to the 'flower' and hover. I had an idea to take the picture, so I tried to put some nectar on the flower. When the bird came around, I put my camera near the flower and used a wireless remote to take the picture.
10. Netizens In The Wild by Catherine Kaling Leung
Spiral orb Webs - vertical or horizontal, dome-shaped or hexagonal, with mysterious writings, or delicate decorations, in peace, in rain, in a storm - I spent 6 pandemic months in the Hong Kong wild, taking ONE-SHOT photos of how spiders spin silk, weave and embellish their webs. On these silky shelters, the spiders can hide, or wait or attack, or feed or rest. Simultaneously, in order to survive, and to protect themselves from outside attack, they have to be trapped behind their own nets day after day, night after night. That's life!
11. Manarola Sunset by Giorgio Graj
After walking all day through the Cinque Terre vineyards we arrived in Manarola in time for a splendid sunset. It lasted a few minutes but gave us a unique emotion.

15. The Horses of Neptune by Davide Giannetti
One day Neptune, God of the Sea, was traveling his domain in his chariot drawn by nine white horses, when, passing in front of the mouth of the Rhone, he met a farmer who was having trouble with a black bull: "Here is my best horse; if you know how to make him a friend, he will be an irreplaceable ally against the black bull. But remember, he comes from the immensity of the sea and he was led by a god: it will be necessary, when he wants, to let him free to come and deeply breathe his marine and divine origins. " This is the legend about the Camargue Horses.
