Gus Photo Contest Finalist
You met Gus before -- Found One! -- just after he proudly showed me the egg he still has clutched in his hand here. While his grandparents, David and I continued to chat, Gus continued to run around the farm, climb up on everything in sight, and get dirtier and dirtier :)

Terrific capture, Nikki. Really paints his personality; the egg in one hand, the steering wheel in the other, and a dirty t-shirt... Sounds like a fun day!

That's one of those expressions that you just have to respond to. Wonderful. Wouldn't it be great to have this kid around to take candids of all the time?
