..........yeah, natures smiley and this is a good one!

Hiro,

The composition of subject and color balance is what make this a photo I will remember, and yes, I would print this at least 11 x 14 matte, frame it large and hang it where the morning sun would shine on it.

I like this so much, thanks for sharing......

Gary & Bob-

Thanks! I tried a couple of different metering options and the center weighted metering worked best to reproduce a proper color. I was lucky.

Thanks Ted even though my contact lenses were foggy at that moment.

Hah! I hear you. I gave up on contacts many years ago because they made it difficult to view through a telescope at night. A good friend of mine who is an excellent optometrist recommended Zeiss eyeglasses and I never went back to contacts. They are lightweight especially with titanium frames - I have worn a series of them for some 2 decades.

PS: Just so JimC, who is a very laid back moderator, doesn't have heartburn about this being off-topic, I would add that I wish I could get CZ lenses for our 4/3 system instead of just Sony DSLRs - I would try them in an instant. Zeiss makes great glass at a way lower price than Leica-Germany.
