This little girl was hanging out one day waiting patiently for someone to notice her. She was wanting some fresh peanuts and also wanted to tease our dog, Junior. I took this photo with my Nikon CoolPix P100 in May 2011. Enhanced just a tad in Corel Paint Shop Photo Pro X3. Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my photo. :)
