Sphinx with Daffodils

It's the Sphinx!

With daffodils.  She's been crouching among them for about two weeks, and I figured if I wanted a good shot with her, I'd better hurry before the flowers wilt.

I lucked into this shot; usually when I photograph her, the Sphinx looks flat -- it was a cloudy day, and the diffuse light probably helped the camera to focus and also softened her features.  I took quite a few shots, trying to re-capture the right combination of camera angle and distance, and this is the photo I like the best.

In a month or so, she'll have a cave of sorts made up of... er, I forget the name of the bushes Mark planted.
