2014—Blocked From View

The local neighborhood squirrel pranced by my patio door this afternoon so I followed with my camera. I found him seemingly transfixed atop the fence; it was only after viewing the shots that I discovered he was eating something. I approached, releasing the shutter as I neared him, in an attempt to get a clearer shot; a cluster of leaves obscured his face or part of his body but when I was within six feet of him, he turned quickly and scampered into the Xylosma where he completely disappeared from view. It’s a good thing one of my recent Flickr challenges is “blocked” because now I have three shots to choose from!
