    How cool Michael!
Wow colors and your POV/comp is excellent.
Lighting, details, and their individual expressions R worth a thousand words :)
This would fit very well in the monthly theme?

Wonderful effect of the line- they appear to have spontaneously choreographed the line for you.

OVERWHELMED, I am ! To those who know me and visit every day; you know I can't type 20 names to thank all of you individually, in one sitting. But, I will, when I get myself untangled on the web, visit your Galleries. You're a swell bunch of people and I really appreciate your support ! I'm an lod retired Marine in tears, right now. Thank you all.
