Ummm...yep, a bit of a self-portrait. :-)

I hope my legs don't steal the show. Wouldn't want the "orange" jacket to play second fiddle too much. DNMC and all that you know. :-P

Yes, I know I could have made it more authentic by showing some skivvies but hey, even though it's wooded in this ravine behind our house you can see a long way with the leaves off the trees now. ... and, we do have neighbors that could be currently hunting the far side of the ravine any time this time of year. That would be an interesting "Howdy neighbor!". :-D

If this doesn't score well, it should at least generate a few comments...then perhaps not.
