Description

Quite a busy night at my front window last nigh. Heard noise and went to look out. Saw nothing through window.Went outside and saw lots of activity. Went back for my camera and tried to get a few photos.
This one quite large in comparison to the other. A good six inches long with tail. Did not tolerate me long before trying to hide in corner behind this dirt nest.
