Taken at the San Antonio Zoo. Applied a slight Buzz. I noticed after submitting this that there's a white speck in the top right corner. I may decide to resubmit someday... :)

The "soft" effect heightens the colors and composition, Nancy, and the long reflection is wonderful as well! Great job on this image!!
Aloha,

Thank you, Stan and Mary! I just realized that there is a speck in the upper righthand corner I should've gotten rid of. Oh well! (:
