Hi Bill finally got a break from work to visit a few galleries and yours always amazes me with your talents and I never know where to comment. This full frame macro so full of detail, clarity and color as well as composition is exquisite. I hope you have a gallery to present these amazing works of art in. Have a nice week-end and Happy Thanksgiving, Bill.
