I got inspired to do a Triptych after looking at John Linton's excellent photo essay about his collection of triptychs.. I shot some photos of an American goldfinch in the woods last September 2018 in early evening who was feasting on seeds from a dead bull thistle. I remember several years ago JPG had a challenge on Triptychs... and it was a lot of fun..... The advantages of being a member as many years as I have is to learn how to do what we are not in the habit of doing in photography and the experience teaches us!

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!

    I am not sure I even did it right Bob but through trial and error I got it to work but still not on
    the same professional level as John's Triptychs:-)
