Matthew. You're a man among men when it comes to photography.  I appreciate you as a little brother and as a doctor.  Now I appreciate you as photographer extraordinaire.  You da man.  You see, I got my bro into photography when I was in college.  He picked it up.  Next thing you know he's light years ahead of me.  Here's a great flower shot that he took in Las Vegas!

Larry B - hope you are having a great weekend with the family .  meant to ask you, I noticed that you have 225K points , which is awesome!!!    - did you jump like 15K overnight. I have noticed some people who went from like 200K to 215K , in what appeared to be a flash (in days) not months. Am I halucinating from the computer glare :)  or missing something. Thanks as always my good friend!

Connie....thanks....

Tom....I'm an outdoor fishing freak, but just wanted a little variety.  From the outdoor pool at the Bellagio.  Next one is going back to fishing in the Arctic.

Karen...good call.

Tim & Pam...almost.

Wexy....Just made a decision to get 10 posts in a week for the last 2 weeks.  Really just wanted to pass to #1 in Illnois.  We have a ton of great people in Illinois, but two, in particular, just throw up junk....so I thought that I'd make a move.  Competitive and not really in the spirit of A.R., but hey...I"m transparent, you know.

Beautiful!    It's very important to look at the small treasures that nature delivers to us.   Wasn't it an English poet who said that the universe can be captured in a small flower?

Lovely photo, Larry, and part of God's beautiful creation.

btw, speaking of the Bellagio, have you eaten in their restaurant and if so, what did you think of it?  I am trying to get my husband to agree to a short LV trip with the Bellagio restaurant on our itinerary.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Ahhhh... gorgeous.  I am looking forward to planting in the yard and in the green house.  But looking at the white crude out the window, that might be a while.

Wow. So it's taken 41 years for flower power to make it from San Francisco to you there in Illinois? LOL
