So real it almost stung me:-) Seriously, terrific image, Bob.

Eric, Thank you for your comment and all the help you have given me in the past on my web site. :)


Oh, yes!
The photography in this site keeps getting better and better. I am going to have to get better equipment or give it up altogether and just enjoy other people's great work.

Thank you....
Beatriz. You have been so helpful, surely we would miss you. :) I always appreciate your assistance.
