It involves a thorough understanding of the behavior of animals and in addition to it, one needs to have sound technical skills, such as being able to expose in the right manner.

About a couple of months back, I redesigned my blog. The whole process took many hours to finish. Well, two weeks ago, I thought it was about time to apply that same redesign process to my personal portfolio, which had become a little outdated and neglected.
