I guess I knew someone had to do this job but I never thought about the why and wherefore.

Hi Jill, I did respond to your e-mail but just did it again in case the first one got lost in cyberspace..
I was out for a large part of the day finding and buying a new suitcase for the trip... finally admitted to myself that the small one I use for everything just won't do for 20 days and cold weather wear..

beautiful composition and capture.

It is peace in Mumbai at last.
Thank you for all your prayers and good wishes.
Pray for all those who lost their lives and may God give strength to their near and dear ones to bear their irreparable loss.

I'm happy to know your blog now, thank you for coming to Arradon Dp!
You make me think to check if I can find some holly with fruits, not always so easy to find...
Your woodpecker is great, love this shot!

I see they are dressed to protect themselves from the sharp spines of the holly.

Very cool photo. Never thought about such a thing being harvested. Looks like a hard, cold job.

This is a little strange, and I'm not sure what it says about me, but this photo has put me in the holiday spirit!
