[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was in Hillsborough forest Park the other day looking for squirrels when I noticed this little rascal on the ground some distance away. As I tried to get closer he noticed me the ran 4ft up the tree waiting for my next move.

I froze and slowly lifted the camera to my eye and captured a few shots at 400mm hand held ;). I took one step closer and that was enough for him, off he went up the tree not to be seen again. He was the only one I saw that day, at least I beat him to the draw and got my photograph.
