The Best-Laid Plans

Of the 70ish pictures I took on my last venture to Disneyland, this time for Christmas pics, I think this little guy is my favorite shot of the night:

I've been trying to get his buddy the owl for a couple of years, but if I don't use a flash, my camera exposes for the castle and you can't see him.  If I do, the flash reflects off the carving, making him overexposed and yucky.

This one was a lucky shot (something like a 14ish second exposure that I manually focused because I couldn't convince my camera that I was trying to take a picture of something so far away) while I waited for Patrick to use the restroom.
