Petey Beans makes an offer...not quite one million dollars, however.

I wasn't happy with the original version, so Petey Beans and I re-shot the image. Thanks to everyone for their previous comments. Had to fix something and re-enter. For the Monthly Theme - Thriving.

Exif: F Number: 8, Exposure Bias Value: -1.67, ExposureTime: 1/80 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 800, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 70.00 mm, Model: NIKON D700
