I wish to express my appreciation to the photographers who so generously let me use their photos for these pages, Karen Isa, Graham Bothwell and Michael Charters, and to Bob Allen for the bug identification and to my companions on these walks whose sharp eyes and funny comments enliven the journey. You're a great bunch! Many thanks! Jane
