I agree, this is gorgeous, Monnie. Wonderful composition, lighting, and soft color. (I have to admit I got a BIG chuckle out of your witty title!)

I just googled "Pistol Packin Mama" & found out it's the name of a very old song! My mother used to refer to people as that. I always wondered where she got it from!

Wonderful macro, with great detail, clarity, light & color, Monnie.
