Young adult male crossing roadway (mid-afternnon). Imaged only. Not touched. GTS 812. UTA DC 7310 (University of Texas at Arlington Digital Collection).
We found it sitting in the middle of a road while we were driving, so we stopped and got it to move back up into the leaf litter.
As my luck would have it, I didn't have my good camera with me...
