Perhaps you recall, from January 2021, the impromptu, Italiano, unshelled peanut diner nearby the home of Bruce, Guido, and Little—all of which appear in my “Cats of University Heights” series? Today, after seeing Halloween signage on the tree, I stopped with Leica Q2 for a quickie.
Coming up the sidewalk, beautifully blurred, a squirrel approaches. The rodent cares nothing about stinky feet but the treat that waits above the skeleton. Go for it, buddy.
The Featured Image is composed as shot—and for the squirrel’s sake, I resisted temptation to close-crop. Vitals, aperture manually set: f/2.8, ISO 100, 1/1600 sec, 28mm; 10:37 a.m. PDT.
