My Nearest Neighbor

Post by minniev »

This fellow is living in the woods right behind the country house, and this visit he has spent some significant time sitting on the old swing set right outside the back door, fussing at me through the window. I have not been able to photograph him without the barrier of a window screen, so I’m hamstrung with artifacts from the screen and its reflections. I think I can clean some of it up at home with Photoshop, but I had to try to fiddle with one of the shots with ipad stuff.

Piet and Frank, thanks for taking a look. No, I don't think I want to hand feed him. I saw him use that thing on some tiny critter in the back yard, and he's pretty ruthless.

Thank you! I agree! Especially with living creatures who just don’t care.
