Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

This is beautiful, Doug. I like the perspective here on this fellow. I have a fairly decent (although not nearly as pin sharp as yours) Bee shot that I am planning to post - we'll see how THAT goes. Meantime, I have really been enjoying all of your work and this one is no exception...just a good fellow you are - you and that guy who just celbrated his 40th anniversary...what was his name again? Well, lLest I babble on forever, I shall leave you alone - Love this one ;-)
