Julie: Last weekend when I was on the porch looking
out the window I saw some strange critters!
Mum said they were groundhogs.
They were baby ones and the Mama was close by.
This is the Mama.
She is very cautious and looks out for the little ones.
Mum was indoors and took the pictures through glass and
the railings on the deck.
She saw this young one.
Looking for tasty shoots and grasses to eat.
Wandering through the yard.
Hmmmmmmmmmm,this looks tasty.
So does this!
Well, maybe not.
The baby groundhogs have a bit of grey in the furs.
They get more brown as they get older.
Two of the five babies.
They move very fast and it was hard for mum to get pictures
of them grouped together.
This baby must have sensed he was being watched.
It was fun watching these little critters run around
Mum was happy she was home and able to get a few pics.
