a groundhog sits 'mong 
tall green grasses, mountainside
a weekend voyeur

Saturday my daughter and I ran some errands in town. During which time we past a local pizza joint. When I looked out the window I saw this groundhog nosing around the mountainside. Once we got turned around I didn't see him anymore and thought I had just imagined seeing the groundhog, until... I saw movement again. Sadly my camera settings weren't set on the best setting to capture the moment and what came out was an underexposed picture. The SUV's movement didn't help either... but, I wanted to share him with you anyway as I thought it odd he was on the mountain instead of lower ground. 


Later, red-orange blushed the evening sky as geese flew into the sunset breaking v formation only once to reform. It was a great way to end the day.

I'm pretty sure I've never seen a groundhog. Cool shot!

I see lots of them, but only on level ground. This is different, and I like it.

I have never seen one before, though I have heard about Groundhog Day! What a find!

I've also never had the pleasure of seeing one, you're very privileged great spot.

I thought it was a statue, seeing how it seems quite still but nice capture nonetheless

I love it! The incredible green, the textures, and then the little groundhog!

The grass is so green it almost looks fake! This is almost like my chippy in the yew bushes on Kigo.

Groundhogs are hard to photosgraph if you even are lucky enough to see one. Glad you got to see it and get a shot!

I was wondering if that was a real photo! Turned out kinda cool and unusual.

We've had some gorgeous sunsets here lately, too.
