Lovely as usual, mole. I prefer the second one of the towers. I like the tree shots. What I've tried that never comes out right. And, your "turned" leaf shot with the sun was what I had attempted last weekend, but never could get it posted right.

Love the series of photos, I wish I can go outdoors more but I am stuck inside for the time being. I really like the one with the clouds outside of the window.

I think the first tower shot shows the scale better with the trees. I have seen Hairstreaks (I have the Grays in my backyard and the tiny little things won't stay in one place log enough to let me approach for a close up), but I have never seen a Comma - I really like that shot. BTW, the vulture is an immature Turkey, not a Black - good shots, too.

I love the first shot and your Black Vulture flight shots are very good as are all of these.

Another great hike with Mole. I enjoy this kind as I never get out of breath. The scenery is awesome as well.

I like the second shot of the tower. I feel the perspective gives it height. I also liked the clouds drifting behind it. The shots from inside were the best. Great views and I didn't mind the climb one bit!

magnificent series, somehow I like the first shot of the toad best. Propably because its in a place where I haven't seen one.

Glad you liked the little climb up the mountain. Thanks for all the kind comments!

Patty - Thanks! Have you tried using Irfanview yet? It sure does help me to resize for posting. It even works on my Mac with a few "tweaks."

Saelee - Thanks so much! hope you get a chance to get outdoors soon.

Penolta - Glad you liked the Comma - they are not usually so cooperative & still!. Of course you are quite right - that was a young Turkey Vulture, and I should have known better! Just not thinking... or looking carefully...

Rodney - thanks!!

Lou - Glad you liked the "sweat-free" hike!!

Ronny - Thanks! That was one very patient toad - ignored my dogs, ignored the camera... I also like the habitat shot, but enjoyed seeing the forest reflection in his eye too!

All of them are special shots, a wonderful hike. Though 12 miles is no longer a "small" hike for me, no matter what elevation gain (sigh). So I'll just enjoy them through your camera lens.

Thanks for your kind comments Harriet - glad you liked them!
You can borrow my dogs - they will pull you up the mountain!!

PS - should have added - there is a much shorter hike up to the fire tower, starting at the park entrance (instead of hiking in the back way as we did). That way is only a few miles of fairly easy hiking.
