Photographer's Statement:

We were out walking and taking pictures when I found this big tree. There were flowers growing all around it, and many little nooks and small spaces for life to grow. I found a small brown spider scurrying about. So I crouched down to take a picture. I was a bit sad that he scurried away before I could get the photo. But I enjoyed the fact that this one tree could bring and carry so much life.
