How much did the strike hurt? Just curious.
Sorry that I haven't called. Still in a bit of a funk here and the weather has not co-operated much either.
Thankfully, I never got dinged when it went for my hand ("near misses"). The attached shot is of 6 year-old me with a boa constrictor at Gatorville in Florida.
No worries, timing has been bad for me, too. Yeah, the weather has been lousy lately (perfect for indoor/still life, though).
