I actually was trying to get a bird to show up -- I had put some meal worms inside the lens hood, but in two days, I had only gotten a grey cat bird (which was cute, but I didn't get a shot), and an elusive carolina wren, again, I couldn't get a shot.

But then this little guy decided to show up. He's not interested in the meal worms, this is his pathway to the birdfeeder, and he was trying to figure out what to do!
