This photo was taken on our property at Cowley Creek with a Canon Powershot SX1 IS. This little guy was very friendly and came right up to me. He would sit close to me while working in the flower garden and, once, he stole one of my garden gloves that were placed beside me and ran off into the woods nearby with it.

The people living in the house before us must have fed him, and when we moved in he was already quite tame. He even used to put his front paws on the screen door asking to come in. He followed us around like a puppy. He seemed to not be disappointed when we refused to feed him, but just enjoyed our company. I haven’t seen him for two years, unfortunately.
