Super colors and have to agree, she's one big bird...but she also looks like a ballet dancer...her toes are in an "en pointe" position! I like her! Fun capture! #8934686

There is a HUGE carousel at House On The Rock in Wisconsin that doesn't have one horse on it but has all kind of animals instead. I don't remember if one of these guys is on it though there are so many animals on it! This is a fantastic image you captured here, Bobby Ray! :-) k #8935504

Every month, with our camera in hand, we go out and find what we hope will be the “winning photo.”
Those of us that don’t get recognized, just continue to search for that special image, until one day the Congratulations come pouring in from some of the best artist and friends anyone could image.
So to the Better Photo winners for the month of September, I congratulate you on a job so well done.
My very best to all of you, Merna Nobile
