Monnie Ryan 2/8/2009 6:47:06 AM

Wow! I can't imagine "losing" this one, either -- it's a fantastic macro! I think all of us who live where winter hits hard are digging around in our piles of older photos. And according to Phil, we've got to suffer through 5 more weeks of this awful stuff! #7141187

Nikki McDonald 2/8/2009 6:50:26 AM

Beautiful burst of sparkle and softness, Laurie. February is a real drag, isn't it? We actually had a nice day yesterday -- high 50's F -- and went to the zoo. So did everyone else :) #7141203

Funny, but it kind of reminds me of a NOVA shot, depicting the moment of conception. (Must be all of my years as a labor and delivery nurse, messing with my head! LOL)
Best of luck with this stunning image.
