IF - Spotted

I originally started this illustration for an SCBWI contest that required showing what a boy who ducked into a cave on his way home from school might see.
I'm posting it here because it fits the theme.
Like this.... "On his way home from school Bobby spotted, out of the corner of his eye, a cave he had never seen befor. Even though he had been walking this path to school, both ways, for so many years that he had worn the grass down to little green nubs. Hesitantly he broke from his regular path, picked up a stick that was nearby, and approached the mysterious new cave. As he got closer, Spot, his dog stopped wagging his tail and drew closer to Bobby's leg for comfort. As they entered the cave, and their eyes adjusted to the half light, they were quite confused and surprised to spot...a bug, reading the paper and enjoying his morning tea and toast. "

Here's the colored version of Spring.
I used marker and colored pencil on the original sketchbook page.

Spring time. The flowers come out, the birds start singing again, the days last longer, and all of the little creatures start showing off their favorite hats.
So for this weeks IF I just had to show you what the little critters are waering in my back yard.
I call this one "Spring Fashions"
