This is probably not that big of a mystery to most on this list, but I have an ID question. I see this little guy all the time in the woods and on edges with regularity. It's usually incredibly energetic and somewhat skittish, so I haven't been able to get a good photo of it until now. If anyone could help me figure it out, that'd be great. Thanks!
Here's the photo.

The shore immediately above the high water mark
