Now you're in the groove.
It's good to see these posts!

Thanks for the encouragement.
I still feel like a kid walking into a grown-up's world and am a little hesitant!

Never hurts to ask.
I often do what I label "Reality Checks" when I'm uncertain. That goes for such *obvious* things as whether or not a critter is a honey bee. Hey, we all have glitches from time to time.

I actually did take a long series of pictures of honey bees, thinking the whole time that they looked like something new and different. Went so far as to post them on BG, only to realize once I saw them in that context what they really were and frassed them all!
