I like the way you positioned the three people looking down with binoculars above/left of the butterfly image. Do you double as a page designer on your off-time?

Nice shots.

I've done layout in both Quark and PageMaker.
I spent today trying to become a digital musician. I figured out a few things, but I'm nowhere near where I should be - in anything.

BTW, I love When Butterflies Attack. The music works so well. You're getting expert with video.

Thanks, I'm trying.
I'm working on something extremely cool with sound. I'll release it in a few months after I work out some bugs and protect it.
