I’ve been looking for this guy all year! A year ago, I caught a fleeting glance of him, but way too briefly to get a photo. With the advent of autumn, however, the Marsh bushes where he hides have been cut back–and this week I saw him running across his former stomping grounds to some still remaining bushes further off.
