Photo Details: It is not common for me to see a black squirrel.  And even more uncommon to see a black squirrel with a light brown tail. He or she saw me coming for a photo and took evasive action to run away from the camera. Even after my peaceful invitation to participate in the great art of photography, the squirrel scampered off. Thankfully, I had the camera on quick capture mode and retrieved the image.
