An African dog with the sunshine behind her keeping her warm...she is an old lady
Don't usually do back lighting as like to see features
but this is an exception for me as she is lovely...and looking at me!!!
dew still on the ground we were there so early, before Park opened

As much Green as I have for Isabel's birthday Greeting
HAPPY BIRTHDAY enjoy your 'Bubbly'

Thank you for all those PM messages this morning..even Australia, got two!!
Have a great day, as I will be doing

Great capture of the Dog Lillian. I hope you wont mind if I suggest that perhaps a touch of exposure compensation would have helped to counteract the strong backlight and give clearer detail in the Dog. GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
As ever I must say this is just my opinion and not a criticism of your image.
