    Strangest thing I've seen. I heard it crawling on the garage door when it was open and figured it'd just slide down when I closed it. Instead I walked around the corner to see this.

    In case anyone is wondering, after a bit of work I got him off the garage door and he scurried away.

    At one point or another, I managed to catch the tips of my thumbs in between the door and the door frame while slamming it shut. [​IMG]

    One of them was an industrial, steel external door. I still cringe just thinking about it.

    I once did that to my finger pulling the door down. I bent the metal around my finger, I got it out but I was nauseated from the pain.

    Amazing how many hyumons&#153; can quickly relate their own experiences to those of the poor squirrel. ;)

    I still come up short on the list of the rules of acquisition. I have a sneaky suspicion they make up some of them as they go, though :juggle: :supergrin:.

    Am I the only one here who hasn't smashed something in a garage door?

    I am sure I will tomorrow, especially since I asked... :upeyes:

    It's still set to ISO 400 from the last time I used it. I'm pretty sure the 80-200/2.8 lens wasn't optimal either.

    Fortunately this is the first thing i've caught in the garage door. Took me around 20 minutes to actually get it on its way. When I raised it enough to let it free it climbed up and I tried lowering it but it had the entire body in the crack. I finally had to prod it with a plastic board to get it to the ground. I think it was in the garage for the day as I found a few things knocked over. I'll probably have to clean it out and see if I had one or an entire family there.
