You can tell by the green grass I took this in the summer when I had a groundhog visiting my backyard. The photos are taken through my sunroom window. Here he was coming around the flower bed under my oak tree. (Enlarge to see his cute little eyes and his mouth nibbling on the grass.)
As he moved a little closer to the window I got another shot as he nibbled on the grass. I had seem him a couple of times and he was always moving quickly. He always proceeded down the flowerbed by the side of the house. I took my camera and quietly went out the front door. He was nibbling grass at the corner of the house unaware I was standing there watching him. I thought I would get a better shot for sure but then he heard a lawnmover and......
.... off he starting running down the side of the house and zoomed down the hillside into the nearby woods. He started to run faster than I thought a groundhog could possibly run. If you enlarge this one look at his fur all smoothed back. It was because he was really running at this point. I was surprised this shot even came out. I had expected a blur!
