      I was looking at old Nature Conservancy winners and had to comment., This is still one of my favorite photos of all time (not just from NC). Besides amazing composition and light, you capture manatees better than any photographer I've seen. The picture gives me joy.

      Thanks! That's touching... I needed that compliment. There is an interview with me on the site coming out next month that kinda chokes one up... Thanks again & manatees thank you too!
