Hi Ron,
after receiving a very complimentary thankyou message from you a bit earlier, it prompted me to have a good look at your pf. I marvel at the extensive array of quality images you have taken, most of which are wild, and not easy to get without incredible patience.
I have always looked for that something special in an image, probably before I look for the technical quality in them, and you achieve both successfully, something I like about your wild barn owl shots, for example.
I always enjoy your looking at your new work,
all the best,
