It is quite tense guarding something, because you never know when you will need to jump up and defend whatever it is you are guarding. It takes a lot out of a bun. I guarded the offering for quite some time before deciding that it was okay to nap. I hadn’t sensed any danger that would require my alert attention.
After my nap, I moved my guardpost to the soft ground beneath my favorite nearby tree. I could still watch for danger, but more importantly I could admire my work at the same time.
