This is my oldest Nephew Chase, I took this picture a few months back and this is my second entry. Picture was taken last afternoon in front my house by my pond. I added the noise reduction to this and cropped it a bit, that is about all I had to do to this one.

My phone line was down for a while today so I will try to get caught up on everyones photos tonight!
