Six-Years Ago (01-April-2007) — New Jersey

Backyard Springtime Nature in New Jersey.

While reviewing some images from 6 years ago, I noticed a spider hiding in a daffodil bloom. It is always fun to go back and review old images – the good, the bad, and the ugly. Sometimes to learn from previous mistakes, other times to discover things in the images that I missed. This is one reason that I don’t delete many images.
