@daniela scharnowski: Thank you very much, daniela. I was a bit surprised but very happy :-)
I like making macro's with varieties of DOF - experiment with expression in these little structures.
It's a wonderfull world we are living in.

Marleen from Doesburg, Netherlands

@ Ga ik jou nu weer danken voor je complimenten.....;-))
En ook nog dank voor je uitleg bij het korstmos -wist het wel, maar had het wat onhandig ingetikt- altijd fijn om wat uitleg te krijgen, vooral bij onderwerpen waarvan ik de namen wat moeilijker vind te onthouden: zoals bij sommige insecten..en idd mossoorten;-))
