    1. Yes I did, only the instructor. Notice the faint pink bokeh on the left? That used to be the instructor :) Posted 10 years ago

    1. Embarrassing! As excuse I'll use it's from 2012, where I was an even larger fool.
      Thanks so much for the correction.

  5. That's not anything that anyone would set as a defining characteristic of you, Ferdy & no need for embarrassment! We all do it, get something in the head & then it's gone. I was just looking, as had one yesterday on Jura, will no doubt put a couple on. There was a Steller's here too, a couple more balds and 2 Goldens. Hope you're well!
