You're right about that! When he heard I was taking him to see my bird photos, he immediately got gussied up in his bird-watching gear.

Thanks, Frank, I wondered about cropping but also wanted to show how "brave" he was in climbing the "tree".

That's my sense of it --- show how brave he is away up in that tree. He put me immediately in mind of Jane Goodall. I love the fact that he is so hung about with gear. That is just one terrific shot of a terrific kid! :yay:

Those are, I believe, the very best ones. When ya try to pose 'em that's when they mug.

(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

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

Jack has a ton of gear for all occasions and sometimes I have to catch myself to not appear too shocked at what he turns up with. He's kinda proud that he's no longer afraid to climb trees, he remembers when he was reluctant to climb without Daddy (who is still a tree climber at 35).Glad you liked it.
