And she does not look it Fred.That face could crack eggs.Still,by all accounts, John Brown apparently could put a smile on her face.Nice capture Fred.

Vey well captured, Fred; the o/o/f background is superb. I think it has what we're supposed to call a "lovely bokeh" these days, but herself wouldn't be amused at that either!
