    Hi there Phillip. I take nature photos of my own. I just was looking through some websites and I wanted to comment on how beautifully yours have been taken. Looks like a keen eye and steady hand. Very nice!

    Thank you for letting me enjoy these and sharing them with others.

    Sincerely, Meghan
