This morning I was sitting at my computer doing some editing work, when out of the corner of my eye I saw a large black mass walk by my office window. Thinking it was the dog next door, I kept working away. A minute later, it walked by again and I thought “that was a really big dog!” I looked out the window and this guy was standing about 10 feet away from me, looking in the windows! I fumbled quickly with my gear (yanked my CF card out of the reader while it was uploading!) and managed to grab a couple of shots before he wandered back up to the forest.
Sure glad he didn’t find his way into the kitchen!
