Huntington Library & Botanical Gardens 12-26-15 — While I was still in the parking lot, walking toward the entrance, I noticed a commotion coming from a window in one of the Huntington’s buildings. I was quite a distance away away, but could still tell that a flicker was having a bit of a dust-up with the window. I was too far away to tell what was really going on, but because the window was reflecting so brightly, I thought that maybe the flicker thought he was trapped and that the outside was on the other side of the window. But when I finally got the image on the computer it turned out that the flicker was carrying on a duel with his own reflection.
