The way this photo subject was angled suggested forward movement. It looks to be heading towards the viewer...scouting, sleuthing, exploring...Hmmm.
I loved the photo!

Thanks so much for the nice comments. Thumbs up While the camera caught the color well, you would have to see this in person to appreciate its brilliant color. This plant hung in the sunroom and I could watch it from the kitchen window as it began opening.
Any day you wake up on the sunny side of the grass is a good day.
