I had to attach this image to this request. I caught her ,placed her in a jar and was waiting for a better time to take the shot. I discovered she was holding on something in the jar today. I opened the jar and found her holding eggs. I took her out for several shots.
I think this is so cool.
Thanks Kathleen Chute

That's a neat slice of life shot.

 
Thank you
I was so surprised to see this myself. When I took her out of the jar to photograph, she never let go of those eggs.
