the larder

Looking out of the bathroom window, one can see that someone - a raccoon? a possum? - is hiding half eaten oranges deep in one of the cypress trees.   Pretty though the orange is against the green, it turned into a technological feat capturing it more or less in focus - a telephoto lens was most unwilling to home in on a tiny patch of color deep in the tree (probably my deficiency, not that of the lens, but still), and finally I resorted to the finger-on-screen approach of my point and shoot, plus flash.  Even so, it doesn't adequately convey the startling and secret quality of the little stash of fruit.
