The Returning Groundhogs

My husband has been doing a lot of work in the back-back of our yard. He’s clearing out areas with young trees in vine tangles. I went out to see the recent progress.

The groundhogs are more tolerant of us now. This adult watched me walk past on the way back to the house. (I was out enough to use the zoom).

The first generation of young ones were tolerant too.

We also have smaller ones. I’m not sure if there’s one or two families here now. The youngest ones have lighter gray on the sides of their head.

There must be many interesting things to watch.

They are curious and cautious.

They look like their belly drags the ground when they run for the barn. They are always aware of my presence in or out of the house … and I have the impression they can see the whites of my eyes, even when I’m by the picture window.

I think they’re cute when they sit up like this and casually look around.

  2. They are cute, but also very hungry. It’s a good thing you don’t grow vegetables.
