Oh my gosh...I won!
I get MrILoveTheAnts wonderful prize of yummy honey!!! I'm thrilled!!!

Seriously it took me an hour of laying on the ground with ants crawling all over me to get that shot. Seemed so funny to be taking photos laying on my back, I've never done that before.

I'm just tickled about winning honey from a real live beekeeper! I'm sure the little bear that I bargained with to get that photo will be thrilled as well.

Great photo BBBBecky!! The little feet just dangling over the edges of the limb, the nose tucked against the limb and his paw, and those sleepy eyes just make you want to reach out and touch him. Maybe reach up and gently tickle his hind foot.

A wonderful way to bring the beauty of the natural world into view.

Ahhh, those lazy days of summer just laying in the shade in your hammock sleeping in a tree letting it all hang out...

Congratulations BooBooBearBecky!

Please PM me with your address and such so I can arrange for your prize of honey for your bears! Okay, the honey is for you but I have a feeling that they are going to get a taste of it as well!

Again, congratulations!

Congratulations, BooBooBearBecky!

It seems only fair to share some honey with the subject of the photo, although that could lead to interesting speculations about other prizes with other photo subjects and I don't think I want to go there.
