Well, I think it’s a male.

One more shot from last week’s vacation. This is probably the best panorama I’ve done yet – 6 or 7 shots, all handheld.

Dori and I finished up the 2nd half of our “babymoon” last week with a trip to the Smoky Mountains. We went to the NC side, near Bryson City. These shots are from the park – the first and second are two different spots along Deep Creek. The third was one of many patches of black-eyed susans along the trail.

Dori and I got out a little late for birding yesterday at Mason Farm, so it was really just the dragonflies out in abundance.

I’ve been slacking off here long enough, so I wanted to post a few shots to kick off the next round of my project. I’ll call this next round ’52+ Pix’, lowering the bar slightly from my original 3/week, but aiming for quality in what I post. We’ll see what happens, but it starts today.
