Beautiful animal and a great picture, Steve. Really we can learn a lot from animals about the meaning of life. #8590270

Steve M. Harrington May 05, 2010

Thank you Leslie, Tammy, Sam and Joanna. I agree that we have much to learn from animals about all aspects of life.
In this case we agreed we were both saddled with problems and that a good nap would get rid of a number of them. :)

LOL...naps work wonders...I can attest to that!
This is a great image, Steve...such clear, crisp details with a great close-up perspective. Very beautiful animal, and image! Think it is a new favorite :)

Thank you very much, Patti. I told him about Sassy and that woke him up for a time. :)

That's great, using the fence as an important element of this shot, Steve. And did you learn great truths, grasshopper? And . . . I don't think I know who Sassy is. Did you by chance get a new doggie? #8593227

Steve M. Harrington May 06, 2010

I learned that there are no absolute truths...except that there are none, which is one, which means the first statement must be false, which makes it true, which... :)
Sassy is a white horse in Patti's gallery. I figured they would enjoy each other's company.
Thank you, Mitch.

Steve this is charming! I hope you took a lot of pictures of this friend. Were you using Nik here? I love this!! :o) #8593248

Steve M. Harrington May 06, 2010

I'm so pleased you like this, Nishon. Thank you.
I use Nik on every image. Tonal Contrast was really helpful on this image. You would not believe what I started with. :)
