Well spotted, and once you see it, you can't see anything else!

Yes, please inset some of your own features the way Chuck did - an Ent Avatar!

I replied to your PM, Matt. I love the picture! Ents are the forest people from the Lord of the Rings series. They are animated, sentient trees, very kind and gentle unless aroused. You don't wanna arouse an Ent! 8~
Friends call me Chuck. :photo: This link takes you to my Flickr albums. Please click on any album to scroll through it.
(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Thanks Steve. Keep alert to my first posting of the Ent, if it gets to that. Happy New Year. Matt
