The tree stands along a sidewalk in our neighborhood. I had to set my chair right in the middle of the walkway to capture the entire tree. When I stood in front of the bear face for the close up, a delightful Fox Squirrel, Sciurus niger, peeked from behind the tree. It was quite curious about the human standing there. At one point I thought it was going to leave the tree and inspect me up close!
Our lowcountry weather has been so absolutely balmy this November and December as compared to the last two years. We really need a freeze. Our early spring wildflowers are thinking it's time to bloom!
