Hi Tess! Thank you very much for the holiday wishes. Here's wishing you and yours the very best as well. I haven't been able to comment much lately either. It's that time of the year where things get busy. Fantastic squirrel portrait (as usual). Take care.

Marty Straub 11/24/2009 9:19:59 AM

Yes, you have been missed. Your photos and personality are some of the things I am thankful for, and clever ways to NOT end a sentence with a preposition is another. This is another of your wonderfully nutty shots, Tess. The diagonal tree trunk and detailed WeeBold really make this a better photo. Happy Thanksfgiving! #8163190

Many, many thanks for the very kind comments!

I had hoped to stage a partial comeback in December, but the holidays are something of a struggle for me, so I might be (mostly) absent until next year.

Either way, I once again thank all of you for your wonderful personalities, fabulous images, and great comments! #8166351

Tess L. Yee level-classic 12/1/2009 6:02:04 AM

As always, a hearty thank you for all of the wonderful comments (and the holiday greetings, too)!

Thanksgiving Day was a treat, as most of my favorite furry guys and gals stopped by for a visit (sadly, WeeBold was not amongst them). After the fuzzbutts returned to their dreys, I found a host of anoles warming in the sun.

Alas, my macro took a bit of a bump on Sunday, so it's headed to NY to (hopefully) be repaired. That means I'm down two tele-zooms and a no shooting for a while.

Howard, I'm happy to read that you got to visit with the grandson, and hope the PC is back to normal soon!

Once again, thanks to everyone for stopping by! #8181788

Ann Myers level-classic 12/1/2009 1:15:45 PM

Hi Tess! Hope your holidays have been joyous and fulfilling. Just wanted to stop by and see if you've been around. Hope you find some time soon to post. I've been missing your shots.

Happy New Year! #8261322

Freddy Bland 1/1/2010 7:42:51 PM

Tess, I hope to see your wonderful images and witty and enjoyable comments very soon. You have been very missed and hope you had a wonderful holiday and a happy New Year! #8262550

Tess L. Yee 1/7/2010 12:02:32 PM

Thank you for all of the wonderful comments and holiday greetings! I'm (sort of) back in business, so to speak...the macro was sent out for repair (though I'm not convinced it's back to normal) and I have a new camera body. Alas, no improvements on the computer/editing front.

In the meantime, the weather has been quite frigid for North Carolina, and the squirrels' appetites have been ravenous.

Hope all is well with everyone, and hope to be back (part-time) in the near future. #8278574

Patrick Rouzes level-classic 1/22/2010 5:20:06 PM

Heyyy, Tess, great to hear from you- we all miss you & your incredible images. Hope you are back soon!

Exceptional everything here, my friend!
Most definitely a fave for me indeed! WTG! #8322415

Laura E. Swan level-classic 1/23/2010 2:25:21 AM

Yummy! A WALNUT! It doesn't get better than this! That's some good eatin'!

Love this one, Tess!

Val Feldman level-classic 1/25/2010 5:36:11 AM

Tess! Please say you're back for good! We missed you and your wonderful captures around here, Do-the-Dew Lady and Nutty Nikon Monster Woman!! #8328076

Tess L. Yee level-classic 1/25/2010 6:11:10 AM

Thank you for the really wonderful comments Patrick, Laura, and Valarie!

Computer issues have prevented me from doing much beyond uploading and backing up my shots. It takes me about 2 hours just to scroll through a few hundred images...forget editing! I do have a few squirrels and anoles that might not need much work, so maybe I can find something (sort of worth) posting!

Hope everyone at BP is having a fabulous start to 2010...happy shooting! #8328214

Margaret R. Barry level-classic 1/25/2010 8:58:24 AM
