Thanks very much, Gary! I actually got about a dozen shots of him sitting still and thought this one was the best to submit. Here's one of the front view shots, which isn't as colorful but gives a good look at his "other side." Keep those gorgeous Alaskan scenes coming!! Thanks again - Howard :-) #66169
