Many thanks for checking out my photos, please feel free to give feedback! My wanderings in nature and observations of birds, particularly raptors, is what gives me great joy and constantly reminds me of the beauty and strength of life. My favourites are raptors, I love their freedom, grace, ruthlessness, pride, adaptability and flexibility and I learn much about parenting, protection and blind faith from them.

    It is OK it finally opened. Do not know what the problem was. Great shot

    No I do not have a problem loading my photos Deb.
    I also had a lot of trouble opening up your RB page tonight. I had to walk away for a while and come back. Do not have any answers.

    A terrific shot Deb. I just read what you and Alwyn were saying. I’ve been having trouble getting some photos to open and not others. Also some photos won’t fav. It looks like it might be a bubble problem.

  • Many thanks Al … I hope it’s a bubble problem and not a me problem, lol!
