Spike is soaking up the rays Vicki! Great details and beautiful macro! #1108936

Thanks Donna! We were all soaking it up today. I was surprised he was willing to sit still long enough to get some decent macro shots at all.

Great capture Vicki... you know they must have been tired after running and hiding from Angela all week... and of course the first sunny day in days and days brings them out too...

Thanks, Doc & Sherry! Yes, he was quite a challenge to capture for sure! He let me get within a foot of him before he decided enough was enough. LOL #7373211
