[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
“Can I Help You” is the name of this photograph. On a walk in the woods, I came upon this beautiful little creature. Shortly afterwards I realize that this tree stump was his home. He seemed to look at me wondering what I was doing. Then he would suddenly disappear in the trees stump for a few seconds, and then reappear.
I took a number of photos.
Suddenly my cell phone rang and while I was talking, one of his friends came over and started to smell my running shoe. As I moved my camera to take a photo, he quickly moved away; maybe the odor of my shoes forced him to move away quickly?
I will certainly visit his home at a later date.
This photograph was cropped; level adjusted, framed and saved for the web.

Funny and cute - good shot - a little soft in focus but enjoyable anyway! Well done!

love the story and a fair capture for a quick impromptu photo mine always come out like this with the hand held 300 lens. it does need a tripod and there have been so many great shots i have missed. for a focal length of 300 the shutter speed should be at least 250+ to stop camera shake.
