Just because, part 35

I know I won’t have the opportunity to do any serious posts for a day or three, but saw this guy hiding in the hosta as I went outside this morning and figured I’d sneak one in – don’t tell the boss. Our secret, okay?

Yeah, he looks grumpy, but we had a wicked amount of rain the past day, so he was probably up all night partying – no sympathy whatsoever. You know I’m the kind of guy that becomes sadistic when I discover someone has a hangover, right?

Anyway, this is the first I’ve seen one in the same location since the holiday, though I know they never go too far. The shadows give a little hint of how far down he was, requiring a precise angle to get the flash to get down there. It’s safe to say that he would have remained out of notice completely, if it weren’t for busybody nature photographers.
