Sunday Snapshot: The Squirrel in My Tree

The Frankenmaple — a large maple tree severely disfigured by misguided attempts to prune it after an ice storm or two — is a neighborhood favorite for birds and home to a pair of squirrels who nest in the tiny branches at the very top. He had many angry things to say to me while I stood under the tree, shooting photos of him and his roommate.
