Playing hide and seek with her shadow,
an ant dreams of a time when
all the world made sense.

    She stands tall and proud, seeking something never really lost. The child within us all LIVES!!! Hide and seek anyone?
    This capture is beautiful!. Black and white, the ant’s playful pose is incredible! COLOSSAL CAPTURE R.L.!!

    Rick, one of your best! I love the implied storytelling here. And, as usual in my remarks, what is the chance of capturing this greatness.
