that's a very encouraging comment, Cindy, and appreciated very much, and thank you. Am glad you enjoyed the images, - I looked at a lot of yours yesterday too, and really enjoyed them, - left some comments, hope you found them. Really like your layering technique, must get into that sometime (all we need is another lifetime,-- right? :) Have never even given layering a try yet! And I really loved seeing the image of you with your precious "grands". How young you look, too.

What an enjoyable photo. The birds are very clear and the touches of color (flowers) about them make the picture very pleasing.

thankyou dear Wilma, - knew the kind comment was from you before even looking to see who wrote it! Those windflowers just do everything by themselves, we don't do anything to them. To be honest, I haven't done much at all to the garden since planting all the baskets etc earlier on, Madeson has done most of the watering each day. Just did a bit of dead heading a few days ago. Its looking a bit of a mess now, the best for this summer is over. The rain at "just the worst time" really messed things up. The Gloriosa daisies are doing well right now, so that's one thing.

I have these pink anemones blooming in my garden now Alandra, but none so gorgeous as yours. Where do you find the time to create such beautiful gardens and with such a wide variety of flowers? Lovely shot. Flowers and birds..can't be beat.

A wonderful natural image, Alandra, I like it.

thankyou dear friend, - nice to hear that you like it. What I did, (to see if it made much difference) before taking the images that day, was remove the protective filter from the lens front. Have never used the lens without it being on there before, but decided since I had the big lens hood on the end of the lens anyway, that would protect the lens. On my version of the image, it did seem to give a brighter colour and sharper image, so from time to time, am going to use the lenses minus their protective filters.

This is beautiful, Alandra. The house sparrows and wind flowers really complement each other. Stunning colors. Vicki

Lovely scene with the birds and the flowers; Beautiful pink flower. Carol

thanks Lorraine, - yes, the flowers really add to the photo. The birds use the flowers to land on before dropping down to the water below.

I think the flowers make this really pretty over all,

Hi Golda, many thanks. Yes, we were in town for all the fireworks, but the only glimpse I had was last night as we headed over the Cambie Bridge, towards home. Saw one big burst of lights in the distance :) I'd have loved to see all of the events, but can't hack the crowds and trying to get out of the area after it's all over. We heard all the "booming" noises tho' :) It must've been fabulous.
