Katie attaches just the right eye to the squirrel she painted yesterday in Miss Kim's Art Class.

Katie attaches just the right eye to the squirrel she painted yesterday in Miss Kim's Art Class. By "right eye," I mean both that Katie was very, very picky about choosing exactly the correct eye sticker, and then also realized that since it shows a side view of a squirrel, that only one eye sticker was needed. (Canon 70D, Canon 50mm f/1.8 II, Program and Auto ISO modes set f/1.8 at 1/125 at ISO 500, no flash. Curves adjustment layer in Photoshop CS6 to correct mediocre AWB handling of fluorescent light.)
