A special tribute to Laura Weishaupt who started this forum five years ago and whose presence has been sorely missed. Every Monday morning I looked forward to Laura's gentle welcoming message and enthusiasm for nature in all its forms. All that and a good photographer, too! The work on this forum set the bar so high, challenging me to do better, to think more deeply, to appreciate the work of others. So, in tribute to Laura: Green heron in flight.
