The other morning I went out to check something in my front yard and my son came with me. He spotted this fellow asleep by the hedges.
He was about 6 feet from us and we worried that we might scare him so we dashed back into the house.
We needn't have bothered because he wasn't too worried. He looked at us then got up and sauntered over to the apple tree and began munching on the leaves.
When he had his fill, he went back to lie down but by now the sun had begun to heat up the yard as it's very enclosed with hedges. He moved several times to find shade then eventually left.
You can see where he's eaten all the leaves.
It's been a long time since I've had any adventures in nature so this was a real treat.
I can see where he'll make a great Christmas card.
