Yes, very pretty--and our future.

Thank you.

Not as a ladder from earth to Heaven, nor as a witness to any creed
But simple service, simply given, to his own kind in their common need.

An excellent photo and a heart-warming backstory, but I really wish the striker wasn't cocked on that Chipmunk.  Just a nit - a really great photo and it should be a promotional poster for encouraging participation by children in Appleseed.
The British learned to dread the frequent appearances of this dire rider at unexpected points along the route of their passage, for his aim was true, and the economical principles in which he was trained forbade his wasting powder and ball.

I will probably re-take that photo for Appleseed use with un-cocked Crickett in left hand variant.

Oleg, you always do fantastic work and this one ranks among my favorites! When you tweak the photo and re-post the new version, I will add it to the facebook 'Appleseed' page...or feel free to add it yourself. Thanks brother!

I had the pleasure of shooting beside her on both days in Manchester, TN.  On Sunday, she was singing to herself while loading, shooting, and reloading.  Very precious to see someone so relaxed while shooting.

She was also my team member for a red coat target contest.  She and the other young lady on the team did a fine job  O0; my iron sight shooting made me the weak member on the team.
