A Wow shot Tom. This image is terrific. It is supercharged, going well beyond what is considered a great shot.

Jim,Ray,Mark,Tom and Zoran, many thanks for the very nice comments. Makes getting muddy, hot and tired worth it Smile . I have no idea why the photo was deleted from the April 2010 contest but I like it and glad you guys did likewise. Cheers, Tom
