!!!!....we not tired of watching your shots of wildlife of Africa, Colleen ... I would say that I want to see your pictures of this life more and more! As for this macro, it was also taken very cool! Nice work, no doubt!Smile
In response to your comment, Colleen: This is Saratov, the city where I'm living now. This city has about one million inhabitants, and it located on the banks of a very large river - Volga. You can see this river at some of my photographs...
