Very nice. I took this one a few years ago when I just had gotten trapped in the G.A.S. and when I had my first DSLR, the old Canon Xt/ 350D. This is a crop, the original frame was much larger, and no one was more surprised than I that it came out so well

Tnx 440 Roadrunner. What caught my attention was the mention of the XT350D. I use the 350D as the "throw it in the back seat and go", camera and it hasn't disappointed yet.
I forgot to mention that I love nature shots such as this one of yours. Living in southeast Florida I'm surrounded by interesting plants and creatures.

LOL. I still have my 350D. It "made" it several years until I upgraded to 40D, later 7D, with a Sony and Pentax K10D along the way.
UNTIL one day I was doin' SOMETHIN' and cracked the little LCD face where the settings show. It still works, but it ticks me off!!
Don't feel bad 440.
I once had a Nikkor 135mm f2 lens fall off of a 1.4 tele - converter - talk about cryin time.
With some JB Weld epoxy and judicious filing ( it landed on the mount when it kissed the ground ! ) I've got it into working condition again.
It's not a question of whether or not the LCD will die but when. Heat, Ultra violet light, and time all take their toll. You just hastened its demise. I have expertise in these fields of LCD failure also.
