Thanks mtngal for the kind words and for verifying that I got the challenge correct.

Taken today when I went to visit my aunt. May swap out during the month as I had some other ideas before. But, this one presented itself to me while out.

Well, that didn't last long. I already want to change it to this one instead. I really like the background on this one. Plus, I'm partial to purple.

Beachboy2, marvelous shot! A zoo? Back yard? A pet?

Thanks, Harriet. This reminded me in the middle of the night last night (yes, while I was sleeping) that I had downloaded the DOF calculator to my PDA a few weeks ago. Had forgotten about it and this would be the perfect time to be playing around with it. It's seems pretty cool.
