Newbury Street Critter

Spotted this guy on the way to Starbucks this afternoon. For a trophy, he has an unusually alert, knowing expression. I grew up surrounded by taxidermy, and I never saw such a clever-looking specimen. Our trophies tended to have that "deer in the headlights" look. I suspect this is because the hunters in my family weren't wily enough to shoot the brighter mammals they went after.
