So does mine -- I wasn't able to read them until you quoted them :)

I liked the bug on the sepal -- it was perfectly positioned to complement the flower, but there was no way that I could stop down enough to get the little bugger sharp with that much of a breeze. I'm frankly amazed that I was able to get an image that sharp at all, to be honest, due to the breeze. It didn't let up for long, and my 2nd shot shows noticeable motion blur.

Excellent accomplishment, let us know how the show turns out.

Well said!!!!

My Vision of Peace
Flowers have long been symbols of passion, love, and purity. They grace even the harshest places, like alpine meadows and harsh deserts.

Too easily we are distracted by the hustle of life, often forgetting why we are here. Wild places give us an opportunity to slow down, and flowers like this lily encourage us to stop and look, and recall where we came from, and to where we shall return in time.

Thanks! I hope it sells and raises some money for Sierra Leone.

At least it's a start, it's my first published image :)

I hope it raises some funds also. It sure did raise some hope for the future for me when I read your statement:

Recently I saw a small toad on some of my flowers and I saw that it's back was bright green. Never saw one like that. I was told by a friend that all very young toads are that color and will change to a normal brown/grey color when they mature. I took some photos of it and they were in my now "lost" camera :(

Thanks for sharing your talents and treasures.
