Hi Greg,

Yep, that's one of mine.

Actually, I have youto thank as last summer, if you recall, you were postingcloseups of flowers taken with the 70-300mm. And I might add, they were great. So, off I went and tried to photograph all the flowers in my backyard. This was one of them.

So, thank you and thanks to Steve's Digicams.

Congratulation Zig,

Now that is a nice picture and worthy of sharing as Steve's DPOTD. It felt pretty good to get that 'other' email too.....huh!

And I am suggesting you put one of your 'Tools of the Trade' files on a sport fishing mag, as I might then say, "that would cover the bases with talent".

Hi Bob,

Thanks. I certainly was surprised when I got the e-mail this morning. Quite honestly, I'd forgotten that I had submitted a photo so was a bit puzzled whenI got the notification.

As for the streamer flies, my dream has always been to catch a large fish on a fly rod using one of my creations and having it on the cover a mag.

Ain't gonna happen, butI can dream..............:?

A truly worthy shot to be up there. Sometimes I look at the photos and wonder how they got there (I won't say too much as I'm a mod so probably shouldn't be controversial!!!) but this one certainly should be.

I would often like to be able to critique the work that is presented and give it a rating.... OK getting off of the soapbox!

Big congrats Zig. Well done.

You've inspired me; maybe I'll submit a photo in the future.
