Thank you for your complements and well wishes. To tell you the truth I also went breathless when I saw this bird so close against a beautiful background and in good light.:) It was one of those cases of being at the right place at the right time with the right equipment, I guess.:)
And about the notes, i coudn't resist writing that much ,even though it became a bit lengthy, because as you very well said, this feeling of friendship and sharing ,is what makes TN special and different from other sites. let it remain so forever.
Thanks once again for all your beautiful and much valued critiques,
My 1st Anniversary in TN (94) *
