    Neat photo. I checked your site to find this. I have been getting all of the updates until this one. I didn’t get it. Marie

  • Thanks for both the kind comment and the alert, Marie!

  • Thanks, Julie! I love the chance to see/photograph them, too :o)

  • Thx, Ken. Yes, it was quite a thrill, particularly since this behavior was listed on my “shot list” :o)
