This morning I had an early christmas present hanging from my front door.
The pictures are not great, and I do apologize, but I was half asleep, ridiculously unsteady and rather apprehensive about the whole deal so the close up was taken by zooming in as far as possible in the attempt to maintain a lot of distance between me and it. But, after a few minutes and some preparatory pillow-case net making, I had the little guy in my P.C.N. and got him outside back into the cold faster than you could say “Oh my god! It’s going to get stuck in my hair!”
The brilliance to photograph the event sadly, does not belong to me. No, it was my mother, whom I was on the phone with at 5:30 this morning discussing battle tactics, that actually said:
“Well, you know, you should really take a picture of it! Before you try to catch it, run and get your camera!”
So this one goes out to my mommas. Don’t worry, I already emailed her copies. You think I let her read this?! HA!
