I'm Leaving   This year's marten is very skittish. You can photograph him closely through the window -- as in yesterday's photo -- but if you try and approach him outside, he's gone. Some previous year's martens would just sneer at you, for example, our friend from two years ago: don't bother me, I'm eating.
