Ground Hog Day

Now that I have a small digital that I can carry with me, there will be opportunities to capture and share some of those moments that, before, I could only tell you about. Here are a few pictures of one of the ground hogs I have seen many times around beautiful downtown Wetumpka.

You can see him just above the headlight of the car. You are probably thinking "I am glad Roxy got that car in the frame so I have some size perspective." Wrong. I am closer to the car than the ground hog. If I could have taken the photo from the other side, you could clearly see that he is larger than an Audi. Also, I would be wet because the river is just beyond where he is eating acorns.

Can you see him below the vines? Crikey! Look at those cold black eyes! Obviously, this is not a full-blooded groundhog but rather some kind of mix with a litter bug. Come on Mr. groundhog, haven't you heard of "Leave no Trace?" Your den looks like a pig pen!

He may be related to us! Oops, did I say that?

I can't see him in the second pic. But wow - he is really big! He looks like a beaver.
