My image won again!

I’m so thrilled…my image of Michael jumping in the muddle puddle was chosen as one of the best photos for last week’s challenge of “Spring Fever” here and featured once again on  MCP Actions Website . Wow…to me that’s like winning a photography contest!  Remember there are over 3,360 photographers from all over the world…
