This little green spider has been at his post on this sunflower ever since it was just a bud...Don't know what it will do when the sunflower is gone...

I love hoe the you left just enough green in the backdrop to accent the grenn bug captured on those lovely yellow petals. It's also amazing how he has managed to bend one of those as well. LOVELY brown color in the corner. You have a keen eye for this little creature, an to have noticed that he has been there all this time, is astonishing.

Thank you, Judy, Bobbie and Chastity! It's been kind of a thrill to see it every time I visit the sunflower...Like I'm going to visit its "home" instead of my flower! :)
