Yes, I did notice, and was going to ask if you might send 1 or 2 of the best images to me in higher resolution, since I could use them in various presentations. The pictures are also a good illustration of succession to shade tolerant species, in area that obviously doesn't have a lot of deer, and has not had the type of understory burns that used to maintain multi-aged white pine forests in the past, which would halt succession at the middle stage (i.e. white pine).

Fascinating reading. I had not noticed that hemlock regenerates much better on conifer logs than hardwood logs.
