Pic Snapped July 29, 2014 - Tree in My Backyard
I always keep my Panasonic DMC-TZ1 fully charged and handy just in case a good snapshot appears nearby whether it's some deer in my yard, or a few squirrels, a colorful bird, or even the aftermath of one of those awful storms we are noted for around here (e.g.,. ice storm, cyclone, etc.) ... Looking out our bedroom window this morning I saw this guy resting on a limb with a nut of some sort munching away without a care in the world.
My neighbor (his house is in the background) often tosses peanuts outside for them. Then the fun begins watching them fight over one or two as they stuff them in their mouth and then dash off to the high ground to enjoy their reward.
I thought this was a cute moment to capture especially since the world around us is going to Hell in the proverbial hand basket as it were. So, since "Rocky" was ignoring everything, I thought I would, too.
