Well, that GonzoBernelli (Nick) took me all over heck's half-acre in southeast Texas today (GB's Take on the Day)in hot, humid, sticky-as-all-get-out swamp land, tramping around for hours, surrounded by big loud belching and singing alligators ... It was fun. We saw dancing tricolour herons : and yellow-crowned night herons : and all manner of other critters. But the best part was meeting Nick and talking about all manner of things, as we traipsed around Brazos Bend State Park. When you're in the company of a fine photographer and a great guy... Always shoot. John P.
