This has been one of the warm spring days when I could sit outside very quietly in the shade waiting for the daytime critters to get within camera range. There were quite a few species I did not manage to photograph, but it’s a start. My friendly (?) squirrel seemed to be considering if she should check out my pockets. Having experienced those needle-like squirrel claws in the distant past made me a little wary of that idea.
