member since: 2/28/2009 Whoa - now, that's a macro! Love all the elements of design in this one, Kathy - crisp delineation of the many vibrant colors and a perfect eye catchlight! Terrific work, once again!

Fantastic close up Kathy, love the color, composition and the sparkle in his eye. Did you have to bribe him with some Fruit Loops to sit still for you.

My, My, girl, you have one gorgeous look here. I just love what you have done with this close up and letting us focus on the eye. The features are gorgeous, but oh the colors stand out. Eye popping beauty my friend.
Have a wonderful day and enjoy.
