When I received my first digital camera it augmented a fascination with watching nature I’d always had.

A big thank you to Anna Chudko and JUSTART for commenting on one of my images when I had scarcely uploaded it. The whole redbubble community seems very welcoming. / I’m a little leery of social/community net…
