    I agree about the monkey........ at least from a distance.

    Nora, I'm really loving your photos, and the size is perfect for viewing. Could you give us the dimensions you resize to? I think I'd like to start using something along the same sizes when I post. Makes it a pleasure to look at, without overwhelming the thread when we go back to read other replies.

    In the distant shots I see a bird, in the close up maybe a hot air baloon with legs on top. I like it.
