Nice find, Michelle! Apples and crab apples are so prevalent this time of of year where I live that I tend to take them for granted. #8575191

Thank you all! I appreciate your kind words. Means a ton from skilled photographers like you. Wanted to get out and take some photos last night but didn't know where to head. So, I found this little beauty in our yard!! Funny how we look past the familiar each day! I guess that's the wonderful thing about photography - always looking at the world with new eyes! #8575489
