MAGNIFICENT, Doug (as always). What a terrific capture and presentation. I for one will be absolutely devastated if this isn't one of this April's "Winners"

Exquisitively done, my dear friend - Allan

ps: I told you this would be a winner (I sent a broccoili-gram to the judges and made them an offer they just couldn't refuse, eh…) he, he, he…
