Hey Marsha! This is a beauty of an image. Love it. Hope all is well with you. I've been so busy in the last few months, haven't been able to get a chance to get your way. I have a friend from another site that has invited me down to Galveston to shoot wading birds. Maybe we can find a time to make a road trip!! #2682506

Marsha S. Smith 4/25/2006 2:59:10 AM

Brenda - that would be great. I am ashamed to say that I haven't been to Tyrell Park yet to see what damage Rita did. #2682968

Somehow I missed this! I love the little touches of purple, they look so pretty with the orange of the lily! #2848206

Marsha S. Smith 6/3/2006 1:29:24 PM

Thanks everyone. I am kind of behind on my thank yous. Jill, the purple in the bg is some petunias that are planted behind the lilies. With a shallow dof it really makes the bg interesting. #2848714
