What Are You Squawking About?

Uploaded: September 23, 2008 14:36:41


I thought I would give this a try in the monthly theme..."interaction". It is a resubmit from last years bird watching phase!
A special congratulation to all of the August finalists. I am always so inspired by all of your talents...you all keep pushing me to try new things and go sometimes beyond my garden for inspiration.
