Thanks Carol!

By brownsilent
This one is for Carol, down there on her sunny island! The one who provides us every morning with a great flower or a sometimes frightening insect, but both masterfully taken and presented.

Thanks Carol for your help with the frame - this one's for you!

And to all of the others on this site, who are lacking sunshine.

And for all who have sunshine!

Thank you all for your great support and good advises. One of you could be the hero of the day, there is another shot waiting for vote 100! Come on, don't be shy!

Have a great day,


Update 10.06am
We found our hero of the day! Ali Murray gave Ballerina vote #100! Thanks Ali!
