Early Morning Visitor

Early in the morning, outside my office, I heard a tap tap tap. It sounded like a briefcase rolling up our wooden walkway. When the noise continued but no one reached my window, I stood and looked outside. This little visitor was strolling through, tapping along. As it heard me come outside, it scurried off to its burrow, giving me just enough time to snap this hasty shot.
