Thank you to our loyal Members who have been submitting to our Group for a long time now. Without you, we wouldn’t be here.

Thank you as always, to you awesome special voters, who took the time to VOTE!

Let’s continue to submit our own BEST QUALITY work, enjoy it, improve upon it, enjoy the work of others, and Nature in general. It’s what it’s all about-
combining our art with our love of Nature, and coming together under that commonality!
