It’s Groundhog Day — a whole day devoted to one of my favourite animals! It gives me an opportunity to post one of the hundreds of photos I have of groundhogs … the one I like the best.
I never forget the first time I saw a groundhog [or marmot]! I’d just arrived here in Canada, and I saw an unbelievably cute little animal out on the lawn. I asked my husband … «what IS it???», and he just shrugged and said ‘it’s a groundhog’.
Now we live in an apartment building so we have neither groundhogs nor raccoons. This picture was shot up on the hill across the road. The mother had gotten a hold of the peanut and the little one wanted in on it.
