Well it snowed here in Ottawa during this past week. Not much, just a few centimetres (that’s less than an inch for the Imperial measuring folks). It was enough to make a hike through the local forests pleasant and different from past hikes through bare trees and dry leaves. I headed off to one of the local National Capital Commission hiking trails just west of Ottawa and tramped around for about 90 minutes with my camera. It was a bright sunny day, not too cold, and the trees provide an excellent shelter from the wind gusts.
During my hike I came across this wee critter hanging out in a tree. If it could talk, it would probably be cursing me as one of those annoying paparazzi who wouldn’t leave people, or in this case, an animal, alone.
