    Holy moly, thanks so much. I am honored that my sleepy "mammal" was "faster" than a flying "avian", yeeeeaaaahhhh
    Fantastic, thanks so much guys. I am very thankful to the BPN, with it's great moderators and fantastic members which I meet in the forums or even when I am somewhere on earth. Love it all the way.
    Also must say a big thank you to Steve K., Rachel H. and Morkel E. for kicking my "behind" so often to get it right from start up.
    The drinks will be on the house whenever I meet someone from BPN.

    Artie, when you see this: When are you again in Europe? I take that free day for sure!

    Again thank you so much guys, guess I sleep tonight with a big smile on my face

    Have a great eve

    Ciao

    Huge congratulations, Anette, on this over the top image and on your IOTY grand prize. The moment I saw this image, I knew it was a winner. I hope you are going to enter it in the BBC this year.

    Hi Steve M. Diane, Randall and Marina,

    thank you very much for your kind words. I am more than honored to have this image selected for the IOTY

    Marina, there are quite a number of images floating in the web with this sleepy head. I was not alone there! It will be entered in a few contests, the ones I do NOT loose the copyright and who knows what!
    We will see

    Enjoy your weekends

    Ciao
