Thank you, Kelly, Julie, Karma, Janet, Larry, Cindy, and Dan!!!!!!! I'm glad you all liked it!

Karma, I love your leaf shot, I think it looks great centered as well...

Janet, thanks... Whenever I see these guys land with their feet down and wings flared I think of a plane going through it's landing check list... Landing gear - check, flaps - check... I think the behavior is actually called parachuting...

Thanks again everyone!

Pam

I cropped this to vertical and despeckled the background in PS for the remake. I also cloned out the distracting white spot in the background and changed the color profile to Adobe RGB 1998. Should I re-enter it?

I'm thinking of re-entering a slightly reworked version of this in December. Here's the new shot. What do you think?
