What are You Doing Back There?

Last night I set up an old mossy Redwood top near the bird feeder. Several years back I left it in a shady area on our property so the moss on it would start growing. It was looking pretty good so I decided to put it up. As it turned out conditions for photography this morning weren't all that great. The wind was positively howling and stuff from the trees was flying into the house. After the wind had settled down a bit I noticed one lone Western Gray Squirrel climbing up to get to the bird feeder in the pouring rain. I quietly set up my camera through the window. At the sound of the shutter it turned and looked back at me as if to say, "What are you doing back there?" Seconds later it dove off the tree and took off into the woods. May you have a blessed weekend, chris Image created with a Canon 7D and a Canon 100-400 IS lens. AV mode, ISO 1600 (It was raining), F 10.0 at 1/30th of a sec.
