Hi again, Joannie. I appreciate your encouragement! Ostrich feathers often take a back seat to peacocks, but I think they are definite rivals!

Teri, I LOVE this. The color is so nice and the effects are subtle, yet, really make it pop. It is one of those images that makes one just stop and stare forever at it. Very nicely done!!!
