Ah ha, tromping about the bush, I see. This is a really wonderful shot. Very sensitive, colorful and ever so sharp. The ticks even have wallets. #120448

Thank you all very much for viewing the image and commenting on it. I appreciate your words immensely. My answer is so late due to the fact that I was in the mountains for two days. Sorry for the delay!
