I value your comments.
I thank you for your many supportive comments yesterday. I had kind of lost my confidence in taking those kind of shots, and you have reassured me.

Don't ever lose your confidence Ruthie... always keep trying and toss them our way to take a looksee, practice makes perfect... you know! Besides, look at me... hardly anyone comes to my blog but you get lots of visitors.... I am such an amateur but you rock! I love this one with the moss.... when there's moss like this it means the environment is very healthy. Great dof and the colors are superb! ((hugs))
