    C&C welcomed, I'm still very rusty in the macro environment. Hopefully the season will deliver better results.

    Crops applied, evident in some areas seen with noise showing.
     
  2. Rusty? Hardly. I really like the spider shots and the wasp!

    Great job. Your season is starting and mine is ending. I really like the spider shot.
