Thank you Morkel, east eve, and Rachel. In this case especially Rachel who suggested the Bronx Zoo for the Captive Theme. There is no doubt who the winner is. Andre's cat is stunning. Congratulations. Gabriela, yours is quite unique. Never seen the eye of a croc that close. Congratulations. I'm away for a couple of days and will have a chance to look for birds in a Ottawa tomorrow. Thanks again. Loi
