Hal and the Squirrel

Some recent photos of me
If you know me and have lost touch, and found this page,
how about getting in touch with me in Portland, Oregon.
I’m in the book.

Putting the following pictures here is appropriate 
since much, perhaps most, of my life here is a 
usually successful endeavor in trying not to go
squirrelly 




To chase a squirrel, so near, yet so far.








You can see Mac's tail vibrating.
The master of his domain. And trust me, it is Mister Squirrel.

On a rainy morning, the first three buds burst into
full blossom on the Flowering Cherry tree in front of my
house on River Ridge.

Bright morning sun on circular spider webs

They are beautiful but deadly parlors for some naive fly.

More photos to come if I'm lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the spider, and even its prey. This web was likely woven by an orb spider. Read more about them here.
