This one image helped me decide to be a nature photographer. I didn't realize I had it until I got home and downloaded the images from my road trip across America. At the time, I really didn't know how to use the camera. The manual was nearly useless. Sometimes you just get lucky, and this is one of my favorite images. I have posted it before, but do it again on this anniversary.
