Petting a jumping spider is adorable.

My top five photos of 2016 for Gray-Card’s annual Top Five Extravaganza.  2016 was a particularly good and bad year for me, and not my best year for photos… but looking back, there were more good ones than I remembered.

1.  Green bee (September)
2.  Cliff with clouds, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area (June)
3.  Brown jumping spider (May)
4.  Hesperus Mountain (September)
5.  January, the butterfly we found in the house (January)
