  5. Rae- thx for your encouragement.
    Mim- thx for your great comment.
    Alan- I would like to tell you that I sat under the moon waiting for it frame this bird but I can't. I managed to get the bird shot down at Brighton beach the othe night. I then took a photo of the moon which I have always wanted to do. Next step was to use GIMP to isolate the bird and superimpose it on the moon. Couldn't resist. Thought the finished product was cool.
    Steffe- thx.
    Luis- thx to you a constant visitor.
    Lucia- thx also for your comments.
