Noticed from the corner of my eye, this scene caused me to do a double-take in passing.

The first captures, attempted by shooting over a fence, were marred by an intervening snowbank. I got lucky with clear skies again the next day, and was able to return at the same time to discover a better vantage point—without trespassing too far.  😉
