…that I was able to photograph this squirrel. I was in the kitchen making coffee when I spied the little fella feasting on some peanuts that I’d left as bait in the yard. It had slipped my mind that I’d begun leaving them bait. As fate would have it, my camera was sitting right on the kitchen counter. Even more astounding was the fact that it had a zoom lens. I snatched up the camera, opened the kitchen door that leads directly into the back yard. The rest is history.
