Thanks Jennifer, I seem to do ok with the haiku form but other forms don't seem to catch the eye of some sponsors' who have their own tastes, but a contest gets you thinking. Tom.

Thank you Nina, they are interesting creatures indeed, saw a wild life program of one battling with a moose five times his size and they are so strong , needless to say the wolf won. Tom.

A true to life image, Tom. Luckily they are equipped to cope with the situation...I would have starved to death! Regards // paul
