Good eye to spot that little guy and great "J" choice.

It's hard to be cross about litter like that... could be the very thing to give someone a grin after a tough day. Nice catch, Lily. :)

Well, he's a cute little guy. Soon to be joined by many more I'm sure. Wonder how he came to be discarded there.

See, this is what happens when you are eagle-eyed, with your camera ever at the ready: When abc Wednesday/J comes around, you're all set with the perfect pic.

Thanks James!

Thanks Shell, & I agree with you about the litter, I think that was exactly what made me snap that photo.

Bobbie I'd like to know the same thing.

Alexa, funny you should say that because I have been wondering how I would use this photo ever since I snapped it.

Thanks Daryl

Thanks Diane

Wow! Good catch!

ha, very cute.
I'm very fond of Halloween because so few people trick-or-treat here. Kids go to stores for treats, but rarely if ever to apartments.

Sometimes apartment buildings will have their own trick-or-treating of course.
