Thank you for your refined picture and nice greetings. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too.
Amazing in-flight ppicture and terrific pose of the bird. I like ultra-delicate colour palette and great details of the image. Bravo and best regards.
P.S. I understand your English so well. Simply the level of your skill is inaccessible to me.

Well you ASCII designed worked pretty good considering the format....Hard to believe we actually used these keys and knew the ASCII for every letter an symbol back in the day.
Your Xmas image is most dramatic. It shows power and peace. The now famous bird looks like an angel. Perhaps it is...no person knows...and it is a beautiful, creative way of posting. You are a special photographer...

Very fine Christmas Greetings for which we thank you very much. I tried to understand the Bird's message, some intorragations may still remind in my mind.
Very nice flight towards 2008

My dear Kevin
This is the most beautiful Christmas card and the most fancy note that I have seen this year! How much patience and imagination!! Splendid capture of the bird with its feathers almost transparent against the sky. I love the composition and the lovely presentation.
Thank you very much for being here. You are so important in TN!!
My very best wishes for you and yours this Christmas time and a very happy New Year too!!

Another one of your superlative effort and presentation. Simply marvellous. The in-flight action and pose has been perfectly freezed. Very neat and sharp image with lovely colours and spot-on exposure. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

You've really managed to create an outstanding Christmas card, my friend! One perfect for TN!
Both your photo and the note and really appropriate for this time of the year and look great!
Aside that, another magnificent in-flight of this cute chickadee with a bit of a wider view now, in which the beautiful sky behind it is also visible. I think this gives the image a bit more serenity and sense of peace, again terrific for this occasion.
I really like like the frame you used here.
I also want to wish you, your family and friends a very Merry Christmas and the best in the New Year!
Bravo and TFS
