Thanks so much, Jeana. I REALLY appreciate your kind words of affirmation. This is a resubmit after realizing that I should repair his broken wing before submitting. I had to patch the bottom part of his wing - there was a chunk of it gone. I also pray that the new year brings you peace and joy. Thank you for being a friend! #3760250

Diana L. Ralph 1/22/2007 1:28:46 PM

Thanks, Vladan... this was what I call a "happy accident"... I was just sitting outside on our church patio, waiting for someone and this little guy was lighting right in front of me and of course, I had my camera (with my longs lens on)... all things just came together for me to be able to capture this. I don't usually sit still long enough to get these shots. ;-) #3851159
