The name I give him because of the sparkly belt he had. At first, they all looked at me suspiciously but after awhile they seemed to get more comfortable. I wished I could communicate with them. I felt like Kevin Costner in "Dances with Wolves". Making hand gestures like I was playing charades while they looked at me like I was a kook.

That is really a most interesting series that you have here; the black and white does work wonders on this subject

This is such a cool frame with wonderfully shallow dof that holds such detail and clarity, and offers do many storylines. Perfect in mono also.

You could run this series for the rest of the year, and I'd be as pleased and transported through every frame of it. Exceptional work, morgan.
