A HUGE thank you to my new friend Rick who has the eyes of a hawk for spotting wildlife hundreds of feet away, barely visible to the naked eye. If it wasn’t for him, I would not have seen or captured this beautiful goddess digitally today.
Another HUGE thank you to Steve for putting thee most amazing lens in my hands and driving me to search for the creature that makes my heart palpitate in profound ways.
Sitting on an orthopedic pillow ontop of a milk crate in freezing cold temperatures for hours is so worth it!
Dedicated to Steve for helping me find her♥
