Can't catch me!
Oxon Hill Farm National Park, MD - July 13, 2005

I saw this little fella running up the trunk of a cool tree I was napping under. I ran to get my camera, but by the time I got back he was gone.  I looked around and finally found him some seven feet up the tree, so I climbed up the tree's root system, which gave me a good three feet, and stretched up because he kept running higher and higher up.  I am, however, persistant and a good climber.
