Fall Harvesting # 61





















This is a chickaree, the West Coast version of a red squirrel. At this time of year they are busy harvesting cones for winter, dropping them off the trees one by one. I wanted to capture how daring and atheletic they are. I worked from a tiny image on one of my photos.
