    Yeah, i'm sure Patrick would have had a great time, but instead he worked ALL DAY on putting a MAJOR playground set together for our kids. He's about 1/2 way there! He'll probably go tomorrow and then I'll be jealous because I didn't go.

    Your shots are great frank. The second was my favorite....That look is pretty scary...just how close was he to you?

    Leigh,

    He was probably 30 - 35 feet away. Not in this case, but I have had these guys fly right at me for 300 yards, and land literally at my feet. In the adrenalin rush of getting the shot, you don't even think about it. 8)

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Frank
