Getting closer to the edge, trying to escape!

Found this little guy on the porch, just outside my front door. I brought him inside and placed him in a martini glass half filled with golden glitter, then started to have fun with DOF. He was nice enough to stay put and not fly away during his shooting, for which I thanked him by setting him free in the garden.
