Newport News, Virgina
A serendipitous moment. I do not normally take my camera gear to work with me but on this day I decided I was going to photograph roses in a local garden after work. As I approached the front door of where I work I was greeted by this fella. He was gracious enough to remain on the door while went back to my vehicle to grab my camera/tripod; and, he then struck this amusing pose.
