Groundhog morning

All spring and summer I’ve been watching a pair of groundhog siblings roam the yard, nibbling on choice blades of grass and most often, yummy weeds.

On this particular morning I was lucky to catch the pair as they wandered out of the woods, damp from the rain that we’d had overnight.

I know these little critters can be a nuisance, but when they go about their daily life…

I’m a big fan of weather…that sounds really silly when I see it written down here. I really do find storms interesting as long as they’re not too violent and lightning is FASCINATING from a distance. 

I’ve got more images to post from this same night, but I need to get my act together and dredge up some energy from somewhere. Can you tell I’ve cut back on chocolate?
