Pale Male the avenger

Photo by Lincoln Karim at Turtle Pond- 9/31/06

I know that rat! I bet it's the one that steals tidbits from our brown bags left a few feet away from us when we're having a picnic at Turtle Pond. On a few occasions it's come right up to the blanket on which we're sitting. A bold and foolhardy rat-- foolishly fearless of people and, to its sorrow, of red-tailed hawks.

PS Our picnic spot is near the rocks in the picture.
