photoblog image groundhog among black raspberry canes

groundhog among black raspberry canes

Taken last spring through the kitchen window. I shot dozens of these guys with a .22 back in my vegetable gardening days. Now I'm content to get vegetables from the local Amish and shoot groundhogs with a camera instead. I even let them live under my house.

Happy Groundhog Day!

How fitting! In this photo he may even be called a woodrat.
Dave Bonta: He may, I suppose - and we do have some maverick woodchucks (AKA groundhogs) that live right in the woods - but the Allegheny woodrat (Neotoma magister) is a very different and much rarer creature, a kind of eastern packrat that lives in the rock scree on top of wooded ridges.
Cool! Happy groundhog day!
