"Bragger"
This tree resides at a remarkable overlook of Lake Tahoe. The photo looks west and on the skyline just left of the tree, under the lower branches, you can see Castle Peak.
We were sitting behind a rock eating lunch when I heard a squeak and a hawk zoomed by, just a foot or so overhead, I felt the whoosh of air, and realized the squeak was the squirrel in it's talons.
