Gleam In His Eye

Many great images are all about being in the right place at the right time. Of course, you must have some skill to go along with it. Well, I happen to be in the right place at the right time. I went out to my back yard early one evening and passed this little guy on my way out. I finished my task then ran inside to get my camera. He was very cooperative but curious as to what I was doing. He kept twisting his head as to say “What gives dude! I took about 4 dozen photos then left him alone to hunt.  This image was taken when he came between me and the sun. It was a bit challenging to take but I really liked how the light backlit his body and especially the gleam in his eye.
