This is not a photoshop creation...It was actually a difficult shot to get. I had to kneel on the road, throw little green apples straight into the air and click the camera just when Piper jumped.

Good job Karen! This is really cute and funny. Great title. Nice job capturing the moment of the jump so that his feet appear to be walking. Good for you!
