Noticed this guy crawling around some tree roots and almost missed seeing him due to his camouflage blending into the tree trunk.

This was a bird photography workshop and I was taking a break when quite by accident I noticed some movement among some tree roots and was able to isolate this guy for some nice images. Here he just pokes his head up into the sunlight out of the shadows.
