Wonder why you were so under the radar the past months.....hope everything is fine and well again. :thumbs_up:

What can I say, Jan...the forum is one of those special places allowing one to 'escape'. Yes, everything is ok and managing. :thumbs_up:

Wonderful Malachite and juv FE :cam: They remain special and you captured them beautifully :clap: :clap:

Great to see the youngster doing so well. I hope to meet him/her on my next visit.
