Thanks for the great cardinal image! I also like the cedar waxwing (great name, huh?) and the swallows with the house in the background. I've got a bunch of personal images that I'll begin sharing. Just haven't yet due to being too lazy to get them scanned and posted.

I'm glad you liked these, Leslie. I'll look forward to seeing your images when you post them!
