Carla- Girl, you sure do know how to bring out the best in the things you take pictures of. This is so beautiful. Love the closeup, the just perfect angle of the shot, the fasinating stripes, and especially that eye. That takes this picture right to the winners circle for me. Beautiful colors, lighting, and clarity, oh but that eye.
Gorgeous work girl.
Have a wonderful day, do enjoy. #7972072
