Hello Howard,
You let us wait for a very long time. Therefore I'm very pleased to see you back. And what a fantastic photo! Your archive lies full of jewels, I think. Please let us enjoy of such a stunning beauties!

Hello Mr.Howard,
First time I am watching your posting here in TN.
Beautiful picture of this jumping butterfly.Nice colour and splendid BG.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice time,

I'm speechless, Howard. WELCOME BACK!
This is the kind of classic nature imagery that drew me to TN 8 years ago. Then gradually, almost all of you left TN . . .
So a picture from you making an appearance here again calls for celebration. :)
And what a picture! The butterfly and the flower in divine synergy without physical contact.
Hope all is well with you and family.

Hello Howard,
What a pleasant surprise to see one of your awesome images again. Hope all is going well for you down in Texas. I occasionally watch the weather channel to see what it is doing down your way, as well as Bob's direction up in Washington.
I have to admit after viewing some of your inflight butterfly shots, I wanted to see if I could capture some myself. I must have taken a hundred photos before I got one to turn out fairly decent:) I learned pretty quickly that it was an art, and I definitely didn't have the gift;)
Your photo is crisp and clear as always with vivid yet natural colors. Perfectly executed and a pleasure to view.

Hello Howard!

Best Regards,
