  22. Bob - our Creator certainly had an eye for detail, and you document it so well in your photos. Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday this week!

  23. What wonderful photos! You must have an amazing telephoto lens. By the way, I read "about you" at the bottom of the page. I just finished reading "Left Neglected" by Lisa Genova in which the main character cannot recognize her left side. It was a very interesting and informative book.

  26. Salut Bob, Bonne et heureuse année. Je t'avais oublié. Jamais dans la beauté de tes photos, et pour le don que tu as de me bouleverser en montrant le cœur de la nature et ces oiseaux que j'aime autant que toi. Mais la maladie change les êtes si brutalement parfois que nous sommes incapable de dire pourquoi, nous agissons ainsi et effaçons de notre mémoire, ceux que nous aimons. J'ai une mémoire qui ne m’accompagne plus autant qu'autrefois, et voilà, les oublis s'installent.
    Je suis si heureux de revoir ton travail et de te retrouver aussi bon photographe animalier.
    Merci pour tout, mon cher Bob.
    En toute amitié.
    Roger
