Thank you for stopping by Pat or else I would not have met you. Your flower photos and close ups of butterflies are wonderful. I'd say stick with that because you are good at it. I love your nature shots of animals in natural settings. You handle your camera well but say nothing about what you do in post so I'll just say it all looks very good. I will enjoy following your channel, I can learn a lot from your flower shots if I may occasionally ask a question or two?

I 'met' Pat here on Flickr just over a year ago and have watched spellbound as she has grown in stature, her images are truly inspirational, she is not afraid to push the envelope and is always trying something new and exciting. Grace , charm and warmth shines in all her work, I so enjoy our cyber coffee's together and what a delight at christmas to find a lovely silver salver filled with goodies in my stream...burp...oops pardon I. Pat never misses her Contacts/Friends new posts and is very loyal and true, humour is a big part of her syche and who could forget the Leprechauns or Fanny the donkey, superb. It is my great honour to know you Pat and count you as one of my dearest Flickr friends.....Bob

Sister Wendy Beckett once said, “Art is to be looked at and it expands your horizon”. Pat, this is the way I feel when I see your beautiful, timely compositions. Your photographs are creative expressions of dainty flowers, children hiding behind sunglasses, colorful birds, birds wading in water and perching on branches in trees, rivers and river reflections, the winter glows of Minnesota, and a lot, lot more. If I sat for myself some achievable goals, it is to bring to my photographs more of the emotions that I see in your photographs. You are a great photographer and my self-appointed mentor.
