Remembering A Once Upon A Time Tenant

Three years ago I did a 'photo shoot' with this lovely adult female Groundhog. She was living in a burrow under our deck. We became friends, and she would let me sit on the deck with her while she ate peanuts. I could place them right in front of her, but never got to where she would take them from me. She was around that spring, and into the summer, and you come to expect...she wasn't there any more.


Back when I took the photos -- more than a hundred of them -- I showed a couple on Flickr. I think that three years is long enough to wait to present another. A few may remember seeing something similar back in Spring 2009. This is a previously unseen shot...filled with personality, and if I may dare say...friendship.


The look on her face is not anger or is just the way she looked before she put her make-up on.


Large Size works quite well.
