    Congrats to all and especially to Teagan. I remember been amazed at the fine detail in the filaments of the Broom when I first saw that image. Now that it's the official prizewinner for June, I went back to look at it ... and, wow, it really is a fine shot.

    BTW, I love that little addition in Teagan's signature ... about the passion!
