    Phillip, thanks so much. You don't know it, but I have learned a lot from reading and looking at some of your interesting posts or replies, so thank YOU.

    Hi Dave, hope all is well with you ... thanks for stopping by with your kind comment. :smile:

    Thanks Gale, I appreciate your nice comments! Hope your arm has recovered from shooting all those planes, heehee ...

    Thanks Dianne, as always, I enjoy your enthusiasm and smilies usage! :biggrin: I see that your equipment list continues to grow! WOW :eek: WOW :eek: :biggrin:

    Hi Anthony, thanks! I was actually happy with that one, too. Also, it was the first time capturing that species and it's always exciting getting a "new one."

    Thanks Clark ... whether we're beginners or have been doing this for a while, I think most of us feel the same way about improving - we watch, observe, read and learn from our fellow members, then go out and try to apply it. It is a very positive outlook that you have. I know that seeing the quality of photos I see on this forum has definitely helped me in staying motivated and in trying hard to improve. :smile:
