Thanks, one and all, for words and gestures of appreciation and encouragement.

As per @EscondidoCal's request, here's the source shot for the banner.

Because of the way NGA resizes uploads, you can't see any more detail in the individual plants that were featured in the banner, but you can get a sense of the overall scene that attracted my eye.

Thanks for posting the whole scene. Thumbs up
Very nice grouping of trees, plants, and structure.

We can see why it caught your eye.
It was just begging to be a banner. Smiling
