Nice close up shot, Mike. Like its eye expression as though it's aware that it's getting some attention.

Thank you very much, SYS! He definitely knew I was there. As soon as I snapped that shot off, he vamoosed.

I'm able to hike with the cam again after rehabbing from frozen shoulder. Ugh. These are from Kenny Hahn Park LA.

hope you're feeling better. I'm out of commission too, not being able to shoot(or do anything.) is driving me nuts.
