Hi Jack. Long time no see! :) Brevard is where my mothers best friend lived for years (B4 she passed) and she loved it. She lived up in the hills. She adored the white squirrels there and the history behind them. They had beautiful surroundings and many fun stories to tell.

What a terrific image! Happy Spring to you!

-Laura :D


frank w. degenhardt level-deluxe 5/15/2012 4:11:03 PM

I really enjoy the lighting and how it brings out the amazing and beautiful colors of the bird. The background darkness really sets up the features as well my friend. #10138415
