As many of you know, I work at the hospital from 7p=7a. We have a beautiful courtyard just outside the Progressive Care Unit. Many of us take our breaks out there. We share this courtyard with a bevy of critters, including 2 cats (been there for years), a family of raccoons, owls, many other species of birds, turtles in the pond and a family of opossums.
The other night, I was on break and I heard a noise in the tree near where I was sitting. I looked up and saw this little fellow in the notch of the tree. As not to scare him, I quietly got up and went inside for my camera. He was still there when I came back out.
I got as close as possible, put a bit of zoom on the camera and got several pictures before he decided that my flash was just too much for his nocturnal eyes.
Here are a few pictures of the little fellow that I shared my break with.
