  1. I liked Jim Knox's juvenile eagle

  2. Thanks, everyone, for another great collection of photos! Matt's sunset on the pond especially awesome. What's "GSP"?

  3. Spectacular! Thank you all for sharing your talent!

  4. Lovely colors! Looks like a little moth in the first photo.

  5. Wonderful phots this week from all. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Jane Naliboff, your photographs are always extraordinarily beautiful! The first photo is of a butterfly in the family of grass skippers, but I can't see enough markings to ID it. Grab a butterfly field guide and prepare to be challenged. Thank you for brightening my day, again!

    Thank you for your kind words on the sunset picture, the colors are fantastic. As to answer your question, "GSP" stands for German Shorthaired Pointer, this is the breed of our dog Duke.
