Tree sitter

I feel like there should be a song about this.

As I was walking through Nomahegan Park, snapping photos here and there, a passing bicyclist saw my camera and gave me a heads-up about “[mutter mutter] in that tree over there!”

Curious, I surveyed the opposite shore of the lake, until I saw what appeared to be a life-sized bronze statue sprawled out in a tree.

As I squinted, the statue moved its arm!

That's not a statue at all!

(The bronze color, it turned out, was only a trick of the setting sun interfering with my color perception.)

Lounging in a tree over a lake! What a perfect way to spend a summer weekend, don’t you think?
