Hi Chris,

Thank you so much. How are things going, been out taking a lot of pictures? I went to Florida and it was great! Lot's of bird pics.

Pat #2621261

Christopher Budny 4/8/2006 9:46:17 AM

Trying... A recent trip to NY and I shot a bunch, but the weather was never cooperative and I didn't get that many keepers, I think. Thankfully, spring is just about here, and I hope to spend some weekends out and about! I need to look into your photo safaris, too, once the weather clears up! (Lovely day today, no? :) #2622230
