Happy Groundhog Day!

baby woodchuck                                                                                                                                          Such a strange tradition on February 2nd BUT I’m so happy that the “official” groundhog did not see their shadow. So we are in for an early spring! Always good news at this time of year, especially if you live in New Hampshire.

The above image is of a baby woodchuck (a.k.a. groundhog) I managed to photograph a few years ago. He/she is peeking out from a stonewall which is just up the road. I was driving by and stopped immediately when I saw it’s little face. We had a brief staring contest for a couple of minutes and I won. Adorable!
