What can I say? Im trippin out here!!! this is phenomenal.

Thanks to everyone who commented!!!!! And thanks to Pat and Geremi for sitting up on those darn posts while I shot away!! (...And what it took to convince those two to make it over again to West Bay, Roatan, Honduras to take this picture..)

Awesome surprise to come back from Moskitia (Honduran/Nicaraguan jungle) and find out that 2 pics are scoring 7+!!!!

I took a shilouette picture also and just changed it from discovery at the last second... I guess I'm not as original and quirky as I thought.. lol
