Not The Best Camouflage

Spotted this little critter just as I was about to hop into the car for the commute into work.  I would think that the contrasting colors would create a perfect bulls-eye for a passing bird, as it sure drew my unwanted attention.

Sorry for the long dry period, but I’ve been having to deal with a torn rotator cuff in my left shoulder for a long while.  I had the necessary surgery last week and am finally on the mend.

Long time readers will remember that I had my right shoulder done back in early 2015… welp, I guess the left one felt neglected.

We were in the car, creeping past these incredible creatures, while taking photos.  The one in the foreground appears nonchalant, but the one to the rear has its tail raised — which is a warning sign of being irritated.  This image wasn’t taken with a telephoto; we were — in fact — about 10 feet or so away from them.
