    Odd to find a concoction of such appealing colors and yet come up with a creature that's not just a little creepy. Cool photo!

  11. What a strange-looking, ugly bird!!! I guess it's appropriate that he's a vulture. That's a face only a mother could love..... yikes!!! Really excellent shot you got of him, Randy!

  15. Well done once again Randy.
     
  16. Killer shot. 'Hope you brought lots of film. I've got one more surf trip planned for Costa, (Pavones) then after that I'll probably do photo trips since things are starting to hurt a little these days.
