Yesterday this guy paid us a visit.
I think he and his friends have been here before. I recognized the chit-chit-chit of their chatter.
There’s a small cluster of cottonwood trees right outside our condo. I took these photos with my elbows propped on our deck railing for stability.
While I watched, he gave himself a dry bath, scratching himself all over. His efforts shook the branches, and fluttered the cottonwood leaves.
The camera’s click-click-click finally got his attention.
