A fabulous Canadian entry... I can just imagine when you took this shot you KNEW it was a winning shot... one of those 'gotcha' moments. Also appreciated the commentary on your other ribbon winning regarding the Haliburton wolf area... next time I am in the area I have a new destination. FABULOUS! What a week for you!
