Groundhog day

In the last blog, I mentioned that a friend and I went to have a relaxing day at Humber Bay West park in the west end of Toronto.

The most interesting moments were late in the afternoon. Sitting quietly at  a picnic table, I noticed a groundhog stick a nose out of the long grass.  Kept very quiet, except of course, of the click of the camera mirror.  Turns out there was a family of three groundhogs nibbling away at the grass. 

After about half an hour, one groundhog was just about a metre from the table, munching on a leaf.
