We were taking our cat to the vet yesterday morning when we saw a groundhog. He was exploring alongside the road as we drove by without pause. We would have been late for the appointment had we taken the time to stop and take a picture, sigh.
Returning home we saw another groundhog. He was at an abandoned house not far from our home. When we first spotted him he was crawling under a building. How he escaped from beneath this building without me seeing him I will never know. Maybe there was a family of groundhogs holing up there.
Anyway, when I looked around the property I saw the pictured groundhog. Instinctively I moved from where I had perched myself and walked across the yard, almost tiptoeing. Now in view of one another, we pause. Realizing there's not immediate threat the groundhog disappears beneath the old house.
