  14. Pictures worth than a thousands word; and with poetry its a marvelous piece. I am always fascinated since childhood in wildlife and sanctuary and also a bit in photography. With the best blend of all of them with poetry… just no words. You works make me stunned, astonished and grateful at the same time.
