Hi Donna and Hsihao,

You both do such awesome work, and congrats to both of you, too. Hsihao, we keep taking Lewis's classes together, and I'm behind. You and I must both have taken a trip to Switzerland last summer. I noticed that you live in Cambridge. Are you an academic, by chance?

Thank you both so much!

Thank you so much, Debby. You are in so many ways my inspiration, and if I could try to take wonderful waterfowl pictures where I live I would, and I'd try to emulate you. Seriously. It was so exciting to finally have a picture that made it to this level. I so appreciate your support all the way.
