No, I didn't take it that way at all, Bob, so no worries.

Emmy, I just looked at my comment again and realized that it might be taken as sarcastic. Wasn't meant that way. I was truly surprised by the date of the sighting (August 9) but February makes more sense. Nice, clear photo.

Awesome, thanks Bob & Rob!! I fixed the date, this was back in February.
