Thanks Steve & Drew! ;-)

I'm just stoked that the photo will be in the 2011 calendar (maybe on the front??) Anyway the distribution of that calendar amongst their 1 million members is huge; that's why I entered the contest, to bring attention to save natural spring areas for manatee - especially Three Sisters Spring. Thanks Again! Carol

A truly stunning image, Carol. Worthy of winning any competition. Head and shoulders above anything else there.

Great cause too.
