Woodchuck

I almost forgot to show you the visitor I had a couple weeks ago. I glanced out the living room window and saw this:


I had to hurry with the camera, for fear it'd get away, so these shots aren't very good, but here it is a little closer:


Yep, it's a woodchuck. It was probably about to eat the blooms off the wild violets in front of the house, which they really seem to like a lot. Every year when those flowers disappear, I figure there's a woodchuck around somewhere.

Incidentally, I did manage to get an Easy-Macro shot of a violet before the woodchuck got to it!


Did you ever realize there's so much detail in those plain-looking little flowers?

Very pretty. Tell that Woodchuck to stay away!

They are really cute, but they can be so despicable when they start to eat all your plants! Let's hope they decide to live elsewhere :)

I think maybe I scared it away... hopefully permanently. So far I still have violets. AND I discovered I have some yellow violets (is that an oxymoron?)! Pics to come.....

Fingers crossed!

And I don't know if it's an oxymoron... I didn't even know what was an oxymoron! I had to google that word since my english is far from perfect : I was thinking it was something related to oxygen and being moron -_- yeah, so far from the real meaning haha

Well, we learn new things every day, don't we? My new thing for today was the yellow violet. Come back tomorrow and see! ;)
