Description

You will have to look close to see the spots but this was the best shot I could get as I had just previously seen him stick his head out of a hole below the stump on the front side of the tree. I looked around the side of the tree and there was another hole in which he had headed toward. I was able to get a few, not very good shots, of him watching me, watching him.
